Civil society must raise their voice and get due share in media to highlight and resolve such issues. Laws are there, but implementation is very poor, no body followed it to enforce these laws, we have to change the laws with the support of civil society recommendations and suggestions for the betterment of common men. Civil society and media could together play their positive role to help out us in this regard.
