Meet Licypriya Kangujam, The Greta Thunberg Of India Who Rejected PM Modi’s Invitation



Licypriya Kangujam, a child environmental activist rejected an offer to join Indian PM Narendra Modi’s #SheInspiresUs campaign on International Women’s Day. Kangujam said that she doesn’t want to be “celebrated” as the PM doesn’t “listen” to the young activist’s voice.

“Dear Narendra Modi Ji, If you do not listen to my voice, please do not celebrate me. Thank you for including me among your many inspiring women under your initiative #SheInspiresUs. After thinking many times I have decided to reject this honour. Jai Hind!”

The eight-year-old girl – Licypriya Kangujam who rejected Indian PM Narendra Modi’s proposal hails from Manipur  and is often called the Greta Thunberg of India

The government had chosen the eight-year-old environmental activist as one of the women to run Modi’s social media accounts as part of his #SheInspiresUs campaign — dedicated to women “whose life and work will help ignite motivation in millions” on Sunday.

Twitter post @LicypriyaK: Dear @narendramodi Ji, please don't celebrate me if you are not going to listen my voice. Thank you for seeing me amongst the inspiring women of the country under your initiative #SheInspiresUs. After thinking many times, I decided to turns down this honor. ??Jai Hind!

In the same sequence, @mygovindia tweeted, “Licypriya Kangujam, is an environmental activist. In the year 2019, she was awarded the Doctor APJ Abdul Kalam Children Award, World Child Peace Prize and India Peace Prize. Do you know anyone like her? ?

Amid the ongoing uproar on social media, Lysipria posted another tweet a few hours ago:

Licypriya wrote, “Dear Brothers / Sisters, Sir / Madam. Stop all propaganda to bully me. I am not against anyone. I just want system change, not climate change. I don’t expect anything from anyone. I just want our leaders to hear my voice. I believe my rejection will help to listen my voice.

Licypriya Kangujam is often compared to Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg. However, Licypriya does not like this comparison. She insists that she has her own identity.
