Bhogpur (Jalandhar), October 12, 2017: Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) Dr. Bhupinder Pal Singh today gave a clarion call to students to spread the message of wiping out the menace of gender prejudice and women exploitation from society.
Addressing the students before flagging off an awareness rally under Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao campaign, the ADC said that the curse of gender prejudice and exploitation against women could be wiped only if the students play a proactive role for this mission. He said that the students and youth were the real agents of change, which could transform the society by making all out efforts in this direction. Dr. Bhupinder Pal Singh said that every student should disseminate the message of equal rights for the girls in the society, so as to ensure that they could be empowered.
The ADC said that the need of the hour was to educate and empower the girl child so that they could succeed in life. He said that it was the high time that every strata of society should make concerted efforts towards achieving this goal so that the girls could carve a niche for themselves in every field. Citing the examples of women achievers, Dr. Bhupinder Pal Singh said that today the girls have outnumbered the boys in several fields be it bureaucracy, politics or sports. He said that there was hardly any field where the girls have not left their indelible imprint.
On the occasion the District Guidance Counselor Mr. Surjit Lal and Principal of School Mrs. Welcomed the ADC to school.
