The event has been organised by her NGO Divyaj Foundation.
Walking the ramp
The first lady of Maharashtra had earlier said, "I feel it is not right to call them (the women who have faced acid attack) victims or survivors, they are the victors. They are hurt –- physically, mentally and psychologically –but they are not broken. Among these girls there are two boys too. Giving them a stage is a beginning, a first step to rebuild confidence in them as many people just avoid looking at them in spite of several surgeries they have gone through. Bollywood stars will also walk with them," she added.
Fadnavis tweeted the video in which she was seen walking with little 'Alina' and saluted their courage.
