Deputy Commissioner of the CHRAJ in his address stated that the indiscipline being experienced in the country currently is the result of missed opportunities by parents in bringing up their children in ethical and morally upright ways. He added that a program of this nature was to help imbibe in children values of integrity and moral uprightness.

He added that not paying attention to the right formation of the individual resulted in the excesses and the need to transform him or him later in life was likely to turn out as a challenge.
