Imphal: An NGO will soon launch a
campaign against the use of toy guns by small children in

the little ones to do `unwanted things` in future life.
Spokesman of the Association for Rural Development and
Women Empowerment` (ARDWE) Marjit Singh told the media the
association was trying to contact different NGOs including All
Manipur Kanba Ima Lup (Mothers association to save Manipur) to
support the campaign in the insurgency-hit region.
He said during the campaign efforts would be made to
convince the parents to buy stationary items for the child
with the money for toy guns.

with toy guns, parents should ask them to play different
He also appealed to the shop owners not to sell toy
guns in the district.
