NEW DELHI: An organisation of street children has urged Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to address their issues and include them as part of the government's agenda.         

The organisation, 'Badhte Kadam', today said that it had faxed the letter to the CM's office yesterday.

"We are hopeful that he will successfully carry out his tenure while helping us to address our issues," 16-year-old Chandni, a member of the group, said, adding that they had written a similar letter during the previous AAP government.           

Another member Jyoti, 14, said, "Our demands include ensuring legal identity to street and working children, proper implementation of all government schemes for underprivileged children and action against people involved in child labour."           

Director of Childhood Enhancement through Training and Action (CHETNA), of which 'Badhte Kadam' is a part, said, "Children have a lot of hope from this government and I hope they take up the issues highlighted by them on a priority basis."
