Website for Girl Awareness remains unattended by Health Dept: LAADO


girl child
Jaipur: Another awareness drive, started by the Department of Health and Family Welfare, for the prevention of girl child via the website seems to be just an eyewash with no updation in content and information in last. Also the response on the site is not very good despite running from last 5 years. What is more shocking is that the team of three members who were given responsibility to monitor are no more working with the Department, while two have already retired and third has been transferred in some other section.

No Appointments Made:

The website still shows the name and contact details of JP Singhal as its State Coordinator head and B.K Gupta and others as Member State Authority, but both have retired one year ago. B. K. Guptatold Patrika, “I still keep receiving phone calls regarding the awareness program as my name and phone number is furnished on the website even after my retirement.’ The irony is at neither department has deployed anyone to take the charge of this post nor has it updated the website from last one year.


Only 283 Complaints Registered:

In last four years only 283 complaints have been registered from all over Rajasthan. The less number of complaints itself suggests the poor publicity of this website among the masses. Sikar is on the top with 61 complaints while none has been registered from Dholpur and Sriganganagar. Rajasthan Patrika is running a campgian for the Girl Child with the name ‘LAADO’.
