Retired DIG of police and Essar Group advisor M.V. Ramachandra Raju has stressed the need for family control mechanism and proper guidance for moulding a child into a good citizen. Mr. Raju was speaking at the annual oration on ‘Vision for Young India-Mission to Continue’ organised by Sri Chennupati Seshagiri Rao Memorial Charitable Trust (CHSRMCT). The lecture was conducted in connection with the fourth death anniversary of Seshagiri Rao in Vijayawada on Thursday.

Stating that the youth were the future leaders for the country and were having power to build a strong society, the officer said the misuse of technology, gruesome crimes, and the recent scams were polluting the minds of the youngsters.

Missing cases

Though India was having 41 per cent of youth population, many of them were unskilled and unemployed he said and added that avenues should be created to improve skills, improve literacy rate by strictly implementing back to school and providing vocational and artisan training programmes.

The former police officer said that missing cases were alarming (about 8,500 per year) in Andhra Pradesh and the anti-social elements were using them for prostitution, drug pedalling, and other crimes. He underlined the need for minimising missing cases and incidents of children going away from homes.

There should be proper understanding between parents and a good atmosphere for shaping the children into intellectuals who would make India shine, he said.

Trust chairperson Chennupati Vidya explained about the ideology of Seshagiri Rao, and how the trust was fulfilling his dreams.

CHSRMCT vice-chairpersons G. Samaram and P. Deeksha, general secretary Ch. Vazeer, treasurer Ch. Vijaya Lakshmi, trustees G. Rashmi, Ch. Vinay and P. Meher N. Prasad participated.
