New Delhi: The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has received a complaint about the congregation of more than 50,000 children of Delhi government schools, amid the fresh spurt in Covid cases. Taking note of the imminent threat to the health of children, the NCPCR has advised caution and also referred the matter to the concerned department for necessary action.

In the run-up to the celebration of India’s 75th Independence Day, the Delhi government has laid out an ambitious plan to create a world record for creating the largest human flag. For this drive, more than 50,000 students are likely to congregate at Delhi’s Burari Grounds to mark 75 years of Independence.

The apex child rights body received the complaint from a person named Pushkar. After receiving the complaint, the body asked Chief Secretary of Delhi Naresh Kumar to take stock of the issue. Notably, the complaint has been received after a week when Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced the development on July 29.

Taking to reporters, Delhi CM said, ”On 15 August, India will complete the 75 years of independence. Let’s 130 crore Indians come together and pledge to make India the greatest and the strongest nation in the world. Seventy-five years ago, the people of this country came together and drove the British out.”

 

To complete the target, the Delhi government department-art, culture and language, education, and Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation worked together. Meanwhile, an innovative parade or march of students was also planned.
