VISAKHAPATNAM:The Labour Department of Visakhapatnam organised a workshop in collaboration with the UNICEF Wednesday to spread awareness on the elimination of child labour, and on child rights’ protection, among officers dealing with the enforcement of child rights in various departments at district-level. The meeting was chaired by R Srinivasa Rao, deputy commissioner of labour, Visakhapatnam, and N Yuvaraj, district collector, was the chief guest.
