Haryana Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Geeta Bhukkal said Haryana would soon have an Act on the pattern of National Commission for Protection of Child Rights Act to ensure protection of children.

The Minister was interacting with mediapersons after redressing grievances of the people at her residence in Jhajjar today.

Greeting the people on the occasion of Diwali, she said "the festival of lights inspires us to take a pledge to promote education and dispel the darkness of illiteracy." She said Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda had decided to set up Women Commission, Human Rights Commission and a Commission for Scheduled Castes. The process to appoint members and Chairman of Scheduled Castes Commission would soon commence.

Referring to the recently held Congress rally in New Delhi, she said that it was the biggest ever rally after freedom of the country and it had made the opposition nervous with the fact that there was an undercurrent in favour of Congress in the country.

This rally also proved that the people were favouring the policies of the Congress including the decision to implement Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in retail sector, she added.

Mr Hooda had already said that the decision to implement FDI would benefit farmers as well as consumers, she said and added that the impact of this decision would soon be visible on the economy of the country.

She said in the recent meeting of the Central Education Advisory Board held in New Delhi, she had suggested to provide residential accommodation to teachers working in remote areas. This decision of Haryana was highly appreciated. The Union Ministry of Human Resource Development had also appreciated the achievements of Haryana in the field of Education, she added.
