Kolkata, April 22, 2017: Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi on Saturday said the world lacks enough “global political will” to prioritise children and adequate budgetary allocations have not been made for education, health and child protection.

“There is a need of global political will to prioritise children and that is not so adequate which is supposed to be. I always call upon the government to protect one generation. You need not to worry about next generation. They will protect themselves.

“Unfortunately, we do not have the enough global political will where children are prioritised, the policies are for the betterment of the children, laws are properly enforced and where adequate budgetary allocations are made to ensure education, health and protection of children,” said Satyarthi at an interactive session with Merchants’ Chamber of Commerce and Industry here.

Satyarthi, whose organisation has been working in 144 countries across the world for child protection and was as jointly awarded the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize with Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai, said there is strong correlation between child labour and unemployment.

He called for a collective moral responsibility from every citizen as well as corporates and the government to come forward for the protecting children. (IANS)

The symbol of Swastika is known to signify peace, prosperity, and good fortune in the religious cultures of Eurasia. In fact, this symbol is considered very significant in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. But, at the same time, it has become one of the most misunderstood religious symbols and has been globally banned in many countries.

He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree.
