Legal Awareness Camp Conducted

IMPHAL, Apr 17: St Patrick English School organized a day-long legal awareness camp at its premises today.

Advocate Premlata Devi spoke on the topic, ‘Domestic violence and right to food’ in the program.

She said that any kind of verbal and physical harassments meted out to women can be claimed as domestic violence. The victims may approach the law court if they face such instances.

She added that denying education to girl child and keeping wives for household works only can also be rated as violence against women.

Speaking on the topic, ‘Right to Education’, Lecturer of LMS Law College, Prof Pramod said that education is the key to development and the State can enhance human resource through education.

He added that every child between the age group of 6 to 14 years is entitled to get free and compulsory education in India.

If any child is denied this right, they may move the law court, he added.

LMS Law College, Prof Pramod however said that providing free books, text books and midday meal alone cannot be said as fulfillment of right to education, but the Government must try to give quality education to all the children of this age group.

Former District and Session Judge Laimayum Birendra Kumar spoke on ‘Family Law and Right of Women’ while Government Advocate Ngangom Tejkumar delved into the topic, ‘Arrest and  detention’ in the program sponsored by Nahakpam Indrajit Singh.
