“It is our duty to restore children to their families” – Railway minister

Shri Suresh Prabhu, Honourable Minister for Railways highlights the issue of runaway children on railway platforms and the government’s efforts to rescue and restore them back to family.

In the message, which comes straight from his heart, he speaks not only about the efforts done by Indian Railways to help these children, but also appeals to parents to take care of their children with love and affection.

“Children who leave their parents and run away from their homes often land up in difficult circumstances. Every day, we contact such children – we believe it is an important duty of ours to restore them to their families. On the stations, there are centres run by NGOs with whom we work so that children can be helped to stay at home in a happy family. If families stay happy, then the nation and the society will remain happy”
