Patna: Bihar Human Rights Commission(BHRC) is all set to launch a district level sensitization programme for public servants as it may go a long way in minimizing human rights’ violation or their inability to prevent such violations.
According to a letter issued by BHRC acting chairperson Neelmani, “The BHRC secretary and IG will jointly conduct four district level sensitization workshops every month. The commission would provide nominal financial assistance to the district magistrates (DMs) for organizing them.”
Apart from the DMs, the workshop should be attended by superintendent of police, CMO-cum-civil surgeon, senior executive magistrate, police officers, district commandant, home guards, block development officers, SHOs, officers related with jail administration, reformation and remand homes and hospital administration.
Similar programmes were held at six of the nine divisions by the BHRC. “The remaining three divisions would also be covered soon but district level participation is much wider,” Neelmani said adding, “The workshops would commence in February but the dates would be decided keeping in mind the convenience of district officials.” Agencies working for the uplift of women and children, differently-abled persons, SC, ST and other weaker sections of the society and officials of related departments should also participate in the workshops, the letter read.
