Patna: The Bihar government would punish those employing children as child labourers, Labour Resources Awadhesh Narayan Singh said today.

"Children should play and go to school. They should not be made to work as child labourers. The state government will punish those employing children as child labourers," Singh told a programme organized by the Labour Resource Department in collaboration with UNICEF.

He appealed to all the persons to take a pledge on International Child Labour Elimination Day today that they would not employ child labourers.
