Just say no to child labour, India to tell people

"Officially, India has about 12 million child workers under 14, more than any other nation, but some voluntary groups put the number at close to 60 million." Without question, this could be a huge social issue. So many kids enter sweatshops instead of schools. This could beyound my imagination.

The worst thing is that this is a long time known issue. "Under India's Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act of 1986, children under 14 are already banned from working". A good law is poorly implemented in 20 years. What can I say? A non-functioning government and social system. Am I right?

Hope India government can make some progress this time.
