The District Judge, Juvenile Justice Board, Principal Justice and District Legal Cell Secretary participated in the awareness program on Children Rights, Anti Ragging, Abuse and Harassment laws organiSed by the Prakasam district legal cell and Childline at Umamaheswara Junior College in Ongole on Saturday. While addressing the gathering the District Judge said, “We should be3 honest and morally right.

It is the duty of the teachers to explain the wrong and right and their differences to the students. As Martin Luther King said, Injustice anywhere is threat to justice everywhere. Students should not let injustice to come to any person and come forward to support the victims. Students should respect their fellow human beings and see that their freedom is not disturbed by them.”

Nagendra, Chairman of Prakasam District Lokadalat said, “Child marriages are high in number even in these days. In many villages, early teenage girls are being forced to end their studies for marriage. Most of the parents know that child marriage is illegal but are coming forward to perform it, with a thought that it is for their bright future. If anyone gets a hint of child marriage in their surroundings, they can complain to any of the government officials or to their teacher to stop these marriages.” BV Sagar, coordinator of Childline said, “Childline works to protect the rights of children and counsels the children and parents on issues like child marriage, run from home, begging on streets, child labour, harassment and other involvement in juvenile acts.

The students should come forward to protect fellow children affected by the above and register a complaint against those who violate the rights of children.” Sravan Kumar, the Principal Justice of the Prakasam district Juvenile Justice Board said, “The future of the country depends on the future of the present children and students. If one wants to change the world, they should start with children. We are observing that the juvenile justice acts are not being implemented in India properly.

A mere 10 per cent of crimes against children are actually reported. The children do not know whom to approach and how to express anything bad that has happened to them. Students should join hands to protect children from abuse and also must be aware that there are stringent acts in India for protection of girls and women from misbehaving men.” V. Mohan, secretary of the Legal Services Cell said, “We should do justice to the duty we were assigned. The students should do justice to their education. As teenagers, students should be very careful and keep themselves away from wrong doings.
