Mysuru, November 15:- The Vidyodaya Makkala Hakkugala Okkoota has urged the government to bring the underprivileged children to the mainstream of the society by providing them with health, education, nutritious food and a rightful place to live in.
“Children’s Day will get a meaning only when all the children of Karnataka get to celebrate the Children’s Day. Observing the day symbolically doesn’t serve any purpose. Thousands of children have lost their childhood and are working at garages, construction sites, hotels and restaurants, etc. It takes away their school life and the future is bleak. Children with no shelter and nomadic tribe children should get their rightful living,” said Abhishek, secretary of the okkoota at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club here on Tuesday.
“Nomadic children from Azeez Saitnagar, Udayagiri and Shanthinagar, who have been deprived of education are seen begging at traffic signals. Such children should be brought to the mainstream and be given education,” said Seema.
They requested the authorities with folded hands to provide all children with education, rights, nutritious food and to make the district free from child labour.
Manju, Sneha, Shankar, Lavanya, Megha, Latha and other children, and Saraswathi of RLHP organisation were present.
