Surat, Sep 30 (ANI): With an aim to boost mass awareness against female infanticide, the members of saree, garment and jewellery traders initiated a special campaign in Surat.
They are endorsing their packing materials, books and letter pads with slogans to promote curbing of female infanticide.
"It is a healthy message that would be given out to the country so that female infanticide can be stopped. Most of our trade and industry in Surat are women-centric so we want that a woman's existence should remain. Only then will our means of income would survive. Also a healthy message would go out to the entire world," said Dilipbhai Patel, cloth trader of Surat.
He disclosed that all plastic and paper carry-bags including parcel and delivery challans would be bearing anti female infanticide messages
