Ludhiana: To save the lives of newborn babies thrown out by their parents after birth, Deputy Commissioner, Ludhiana Ravi Bhagat has stated that the District Administration would soon start a ‘Panghura Ghar’ in Khanna town of the district.
The land for setting up of this Panghura Ghar (cradle scheme) has been identified and it would soon come up in the town. The DC said this while holding a meeting of officials at his office, here on Tuesday. Deputy Commissioner said that in Khanna, a piece of land at old age home has been identified and the concerned officials have been asked to make necessary arrangements.
He said the Panghura Ghar in Ludhiana city continues to offer help and hope of a better life to abandoned infants, and expose how when a girl is born, patriarchal society goes cribbing. The cradle has curbed incidents such as the dumping of newborns either in trash cans or on roadsides, to quite an extent, and the children can get better life, if prosperous families adopt them.
He said this scheme has come as providential support for parents who are unable to bring up children on their own. The meeting was attended by Shaukat Ahmed Pare, SDM (Khanna), Kuldeep Singh Mann and Dr Rajinder Singh, both from Swami Ganga Giri Bhuri Wale International Foundation Dham. A meeting being organised as new Panghura Ghar is to be launched soon in Khanna.
