I think there is an urgent need to eliminate child labour in Pakistan. The menace has greatly impacted on the society and has also hurt overall national development. Also the problem is that majority of the children falling victim to the scourge cannot go to school and get educated. A lot has been said and written on the subject but now firm measures are needed for which the civil society must also come forward.
