“SAVE THE GIRL CHILD” “SAVE THE GIRL CHILD” “SAVE THE GIRL CHILD”
This was the message one could see yesterday morning while moving towards their offices in lanes of Bapu Bazar, Town Hall and Delhi Gate. Some must be thinking or amazed to see the crowd or some must be trying to guess why these people are out & what was the occasion?? Whereas many people joined in to be the part of the gentle cause without even bothering about the occasion. The hoardings and the banners must clear some of your doubts but the question for what is the incident, remains the same. So let me clear your doubt. It was the occasion of Indian National Girls Day announced in 2009 by the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government with the hope to spread the awareness against the sex selection, female infant mortality and abortion of girl child. On the day i.e. 24th January in the year 1966 the most powerful lady in the Indian Politics daughter of Pandit Jawharlal Nehru none other than Indira Gandhi joined in as the first woman Prime Minister of the Republic of India is an anecdote behind selecting the date.
An appeal by the leading newspaper Dainik Bhaskar and thousands of people, ample of organizations formed the part of the rally which started from Town Hall passing through Bapu Bazar, Delhi Gate summed up at District Collectorate where many organization handovered the letter to Additional District Magistrate (ADM, city) Mr. Mohammad Yaseen Pathan in the name of Chief Minister for the state.
