With the increasing cases of female foeticide being reported, BMC has decided to hold street plays to spread awareness on this social evil. BMC would soon be conducting street plays to spread awareness against female infanticide. Through these street plays, people would be made aware of the consequences of female infanticide. According to the BMC commissioner Jairaj Pathak, the theme of the street play revolves around a king and his kingdom which would attract people to it. The artists participating in the street plays are officers of the BMC Health department who have put in hard work to make this street play a success. This step taken by BMC is although commendable, but is only awareness will help in curbing the issue of female infanticide or action against doctors and clinics indulging in this social evil the need of the hour.
