In Delhi, a walkathon was organized to mark the World Population day which witnessed the attendance of Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan and actress Shabana Azmi.
The Union Health Minister said, "I want to appeal to all my country people that they should now go for a new start to make our country free of problems. We must create awareness that a mother who is pregnant should get all the vaccinations done. We need to take pledge that we will welcome daughters in our families. We will give them strength which will make our family and country strong."
The walkathon had been organised for population stabilization and was attended by hundreds of school children.
