Eliminate foeticide, addiction from society: Patil

President Pratibha Patil stressed upon removing social evils like female foeticide, child marriage and addiction from the society.



New Delhi: President Pratibha Patil on Wednesday stressed upon removing social evils like female foeticide, child marriage and addiction from the society.

Interacting with students, she said the youth must learn to work together and have a sense of duty besides civic sense.

"The President felt that academic institutions should also focus on providing good recreation facilities to their students, as a healthy mind and a healthy body are equally important for the development of an individual," a Rashtrapati Bhavan release quoted Patil as saying.

"The President further emphasised on the need to eliminate evil social practices such as female foeticide, child marriage and addiction from society," it said.
Patil was speaking after presenting the Brain Hunt-2012 awards, organised by Dainik Bhaskar Group, for students from Class I-XII.
