    Don't blame Pramodh Madhwaraj for these things. He is busy in BUILDING his CONSTITUENCY. He is preparing Water Tankers to supply waters in Summer. He knows there will be problems in Summer.

    Also don't ask him how he finished BE that too in KREC within 3 years which is not possible to any student of KREC (now NITK, Surathkal). Though he tells the same in fun but ACTUALLY the ambition of NATION BUILDING dragged him out of KREC.

    Child Labours.... Fish Meal factory pollution are silly matters... Why disturb a social worker ?

    Can we find a permanent solution to this problem? the officials will put them in remand home, charge them with relevant Sections & act as per the law.
    We need to peep beyond this situation to realise and find solution to the actual problem.

    Child labor is a serious problem in many developing countries due to extreme poverty and weak governance system. Feel sorry for the kids. Unless and until the money greedy parents & employers of child laborers are not punished, this problem will not be solved.

    I think we should allow children to work after school hours.

    There are many instances where children meet the school expenses by working in the evenings and early mornings when their parents can not afford to send them to school.
    Please dont say schooling is free it does require some expenses.

    Instead make sure they are treated well in their work places like restaurants.

    I believe hotels like indra bhavana and mohini vilasa has given opportunities to many children earlier to work and pursue studies.
