Talking about attacks on people from Bihar and UP in Gujarat, Baby, says, “It’s saddening. If there had been such facilities in our state, why would they go to another state. It’s lack of education and opportunities that makes them move out of their state.” Speaking about the occasion, Nadir Patel, Canada’s High Commissioner to India said, “The International Day of the Girl provides us an opportunity to highlight the needs and rights of girls. This year, we at High Commission are focussing on girls’ education because it has a direct and positive impact on development.”
