Addressing the gathering, Kamrup Metro Deputy Commissioner Biswajit Pegu said that child labour is a social evil that endangers the development of both children and society.
“Children are the future of the world. However, when they are forced into labour, their mental and physical growth is impeded,” Pegu said.
Higher officials of various departments also took part in the said programme. As part of the occasion, all the participants also took oath not to engage child labourers in their homes and places of work.
