CHANDIGARH: Geeta Bhukkal, Education, Health and Social Justice & Empowerment Minister, Haryana on Sunday called upon the people to extend their wholehearted cooperation to the Government in its efforts to eradicate social evils like female foeticide.
Bhukkal, who was addressing a religious gathering at Jhajjar recently, said that the female foeticide was a blot on the fair name of our society. The social and religious organisations should come forward to educate the people about the implications of this evil. The State Government had implemented a number of schemes to raise the social status of the girl child in the society. But for awakening of the masses, no policy or programmes could be successful no matter how good it is, she added.
