Respected Madam / Sir,

This is to bring to your notice, that in 1992, more particularly on 19.11.1992, we the Nation have ratified articles and resolution passed and convention on the Rights of the Child more particularly adopted by General Assembly of the United Nations bearing Ref. No. A/RES/44/25 of 20-11-1989. Thereafter in 2005 we have passed an Act, The Commission for protection of Child Rights Act 2005, appointing child right commission to look into the matter relating to child rights.

Under the said convention all the signatory Nations have assured international community that they shall be implementing the articles of the said convention and shall play role in improving condition of the children of their Nation. Under the convention members / signatory state parties were bound to implement the rights of the children and for the purpose of convenience we are not reproducing the same but has been put on record by publics movement MISSION JUSTICE in August,2010.

However, it has been seen that apart from appointment of commission to look into the said rights, we have done nothing to recognize or implement the said rights as guaranteed by us before international community. We support the demand of MISSION JUSTICE fo implementation of the full articles of Convention and demand a single "FAMILY PROTECTION AND MAINTAINANCE ACT" for covering all issue of all family members.

We hope that the citizens demand as per MISSION JUSTICE for implementation of child rights is implemented immediately and fully and effectively.

With this we request you to look into this aspect of the voice of voiceless i.e. children, who are the future of this Nation and necessary measures / steps be taken with regard to protecting the interest of these children. We call upon the state to implement the said rights and also other rights by codifying all the children laws in one enactment of single Act and also transfer all criminal and civil provision in one single piece of legislation with regard to the family and child.

Thanking you in anticipation.
Yours truly,
