"Chairperson of National Commission for Protection of Child Rights Kaushal Singh was also present."
New Delhi, July 12 - An event was organised here Saturday to bring a sustainable change in the lives of street children.

Organised by a non-governmental organisation (NGO) Childhood Enhancement through Training and Action (CHETNA), representatives from the police, government and other NGOs attended the day-long consultation.

The participants agreed that only the government has the resources and the authority to ensure children's rights at a national level.

Chairperson of National Commission for Protection of Child Rights Kaushal Singh was also present.

We need to have a separate ministry for children and full convergence of all the already existing institutions working for children. We will take up these issues with the government on priority, she said.
