Ludhiana – With looking at the increasing number of illegal incidents of harming girls by any means in the city, the Government College for Girls located at Ferozpur Road Ludhiana took appropriate actions.
The authorities decided to install a complaint box in the college where the students can write their complaints and submit. The box is of pink color and is titled as Himmat Di Awaaz.
The students demand relief from eve teasing of boys outside the college and looking into the scenario it was being officialized that an hour before the college starts and one hour after the college gets over women police officers will be on duty for the girl students safety outside the college.
Further to the complaints, the box will be opened every month by either the principal or the police officials and appropriate actions regarding the complaints will be undertaken.
During one college seminar “Crime against Women” where ACP Sartaj Singh was present as chief guest the girls of the college raised their voice and depicted the incidents of girls being eve-teased by boys outside the college surroundings after which the whole action of installing the complaint box in the college was undertaken.
The Principal of the college Savita Sharma believes that “Putting up a complaint box is a good step but the real purpose of the box will be solved only when the box is opened up by the police. Our students are aware and they will be submitting the complaint if they face any problem. The opening up of the box should be a regular feature.”
Let’s see, what further actions will the top authorities take after a month.
