New Delhi: Expressing “grave concern and anguish” over the declining child sex ratio, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has written to all chief ministers asking them to ensure strict implementation of the law against prenatal sex selection and take other steps to see that the girl child was not neglected.

Sources in the Prime Minister’s Office said on Thursday that the Prime Minister urged them to put in place a concerted plan of action for strict implementation of the Pre-conception and Pre-natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Act, 1994.

“Discrimination against the girl child that begins in the womb continues through the life of the girl,” he said. (UNI)
