The insincerity of the Government of India on the girl child issues has been exposed once again. It has voted against a Resolution Against Child Marriage moved in the UN Human Rights Council. While 107 countries voted in favour of the Resolution, India did not support the same.
India is the country where maximum child marriages are being conducted. 40% of world wide child marriages are in India – about 24 million!While the government is very vocal about saving the girl child, against child marriages etc. it did not support the UN Resolution against Child Marriage.
Political exigencies are more important to the Government than the welfare of the people and especially the women and girl child.
