HC lampoons govt on its irresponsibility towards child workers’ rehabilitation

By NewsGram Staff Writer

New Delhi: In an attempt at addressing the critical condition of the rehabilitating rescued child laborers of the city, the Delhi High Court has asked the state government to undertake effective actions in order to achieve the same.

A bench of justices Kailash Gambhir and PS Teji were alarmed at the fact that Delhi, despite having the required infrastructure, fails in providing adequate amenities to the rehabilitated child laborers.

Further, it also directed Delhi’s Chief Secretary to improve upon the working of Child Welfare Committees. The bench has also asked the secretary to look into the workings of the CWCs and juvenile homes.

The aforesaid order came in the wake of the lackadaisical attitude put up by both the central and state government in rescuing the two children in the capital.

It was after looking into the plea put up by Seema Roy who has been running pillar to post in order to get the custody of  her 12 year old son.

The bench realized that the Delhi police, CWC and the department of labour have failed in solving the precarious condition of child labourers.

“The chief secretary of Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi is directed to convene an urgent meeting of all the stakeholders to have a complete review of the functioning of all the bodies who are involved in the process and to ascertain the exact reasons as to why they have failed to carry out the said directives,” the bench said, as quoted in a leading daily.
