Awareness rally against child labour

Our Correspondent

Sonepat, June 12

On the occasion of World Day Against Child Labour, inmates of various child protection homes in the district on Tuesday participated in an awareness rally jointly organised by the District Legal Services Authority and the District Child Protection Office here.

After flagging off the rally from the district court premises, District and Session Judge Lalit Batra said that the child labour was a blot on society and it must be removed. “There are legal provisions against the child labour as well as against those engaging children in labour work,” he said.

After passing through different localities, the rally culminated outside the local railway station where the participants showcased evils of child labour and child begging through skits and other presentations.
