Moreover, the government also wanted to warn all the people involved in such types of practices by launching such campaigns. 

The campaign would primarily focus on the school children who are under age and visitors as well. This sensitisation and education campaign will target all members of society, including primary school children and visitors.

While informing about the campaign, the government noted, “The Government has launched a Human Trafficking Sensitisation Campaign to educate the public about this serious crime that impacts the globe.
