Kailash Satyarthi Children`s Foundation launches Mukti Caravan in Bihar

Patna, Nov 05 (UNI) Bihar Assembly speaker Vijay Kumar Chaudhary flagged off Mukti Carvan- an initative by the Kailash Satyarthi Children`s Foundation, founded by Noble laureate Kailash Satyarthi here today.
‘Mukti Caravan’- is a nationwide campaign on wheels against the organised trafficking.

Chairperson, Bihar State Commission for Protection of Child Rights Dr. Harpal Kaur, Member Secretary, Bihar State Legal Services Authority, Sunil Dutt Mishra and former Minister Shyam Rajak were also present on the occasion.

Mukti Caravan has been utilised as an instrument of mass mobilisation and awareness since 1997 to sensitise people on the issue of child trafficking and child labour in India.

The campaign will formally commence in Begusarai tomorrow even as it is reinforced with the combined strength of the government, judiciary, State Commission for Protection of Child Rights, civil society organisations, labour resources department, partner NGOs and the people of Bihar.

Speaking at the launch, Mr Chaudhary said, “The recent case where 34 children were trafficked to Ludhiana from Bihar and Jharkhand is just one of the countless cases that reiterate the urgent need to sensitise the common people on the reality of trafficking. Girls under 18 are most vulnerable to being pushed into slavery, sex work, and surrogacy rackets. Underage boys were mostly sold to bangle and carpet factory owners outside the state and are forced into bonded labour.”

Children are mostly enticed through placement agencies and are taken to Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, Mumbai and Kolkata among other bigger cities where they end up in brothels, forced labour, sex rackets, or as domestic workers. A majority of victims are from Patna, Gaya, Nalanda, Nawada, East and West Champaran, Sitamarhi, Darbhanga, Madhubani, Samastipur, Madhepura, Supaul and Kishanganj districts.
