Mumbai: “As a society, we have failed our children and it’s high time, we should make efforts to save our children,” said Justice Satyaranjan Dharmadhikari of the Bombay High Court on Thursday.
The judge was speaking at an event, which was organised to mark the month-long campaign to create "child-friendly" Mumbai and to spread awareness on child labour and trafficking.
The event was organised by Bachpan Bachao Andolan, along with State Legal Service Authority, Labour Dept and Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation.
Justice Dharmadhikari, who flagged off the campaign at the Gateway in the morning stressed on the need to save children from exploitation.
“We should now step up our efforts to save our children from all forms of exploitation. If we are able to extend a helping hand to distressed kids, the nation will tread on the path of development,” he said.
