The Social Justice and Human Rights Protection wing of the City Police organised an awareness programme here on Thursday on human rights and against untouchability
Collector C. Samayamoorthy said the country always believed in its adage unity in diversity.
None should be treated as per his or her social status, caste, creed, colour etc. To ensure equality in the society, the official machinery had created a separate wing in the police.
“The State Government gives free uniform to school children with the objective of creating equality among them and inculcating this idea in tender hearts. Hence, they should treat their friends equally and this quality should never be diluted,” he said.
Earlier, the school children took out a rally from Manakaavalanpillai Nagar.
Tirunelveli City Police Commissioner Sunil Kumar Singh flagged off the rally.
