Human Rights Day’s importance undermined, laments Information Commissioner
Vijayawada: State Information Commissioner P Vijaya Babu on Wednesday expressed his concern over increase in violence against women in the country.
Speaking at a programme organised by the Bezwada Bar Association (BBA) here to mark the International Human Rights Day, he said that girls should raise their voice to safeguard their interests in the wake of increase in attacks against them. It was unfortunate that the Human Rights Day was not being considered an important event to be celebrated on a grand scale to promote awareness among people about the need to uphold the basic rights in a civilised society, he said.
Vijaya Babu lauded the initiative of advocate T Chiranjeevi of the BBA who filed a PIL in the High Court against the ‘Operation Night Domination’ launched by the city Police Commissioner to curb the rate of crimes in Vijayawada. Responding to the PIL, the High Court stayed the searches being carried out by the city police after 11 pm. He exhorted advocates to act with social responsibility and enlighten people about their fundamental rights. Krishna district Judge R Murali, BBA president Sampara Durga Srinivas, BBA Human Rights convener Ram Prasad and others were present.
