'Child rights, not on netas agenda'

People shower love for their wards outside, but prefer to ill treat others, experts bemoan

'Child rights, not on netas agenda'

He was speaking after inaugurating Children’s Parliament, a district-level meet organised by Child Rights Trust, at Vanaranga in the city.

Halemane said, however there are exceptions with elected representatives raising the issues related to children owing to pressure from some quarters. The role of these representatives assume significance in the wake of increasing child abuse in public, school and also houses. While people shower love for their wards outside, they prefer to ill treat other kids. At homes, elders are always against the decision of their offsprings. Be it buying a new garment, they stress on their choice, instead of taking kids opinion. It is due to presumption that, the kids are not mature enough to take decisions and even if they dare to take, it will be not be accepted by all.

“The challenge before the parents is to take their kids into confidence”, said Halemane.
The four important declarations by United Nations are also not being put into practice by member states too, Halemane regretted.

Vasudev Sharma of Child Rights Trust highlighted about the need of the hour and the reasons that compelled the trust to host programmes exclusively for kids. When more thrust is laid on the rights of various others, why should be the children kept aloof from it?, he said. The inaugural session was followed by the Children’s Parliament that was attended by students of several schools.

Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha (KRRS) leader K S Nanjundegowda, Dr Latha and others were present.
