    1,800 boys killed, 52,000 in jail abroad: LBP

    Jalandhar, Nov 14 (PTI) :Around 1,800 Punjabi boys have been killed and over 52,000 are languishing in jails or holed up in jungles abroad, the Lok Bhalai Party claimed today.

    Another 35 lakh youths were unemployed, many children subjected to illegal human trafficking and over 35,000 posts of teachers were lying vacant in the state, LBP working president Avtar Singh Mullapuri said while addressing a function here on the occasion of Children's Day.

    He said "with the business of illegal human trafficking flourishing in Punjab, around 1,800 young Punjabi boys have been killed and more than 52,000 are languishing in jails or jungles in foreign countries"
    .
    The LBP, which is campaigning for children's rights, also took out a protest march in this city against the "indifferent attitude" of political parties towards the youth and children.

    Mullapuri said "we repect the country's first Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru whose birthday is celebrated as Children's Day and we have chosen this day it to make people aware of the deception of political parties due to which the interests of the children, youth and parents are ignored".

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
