Sajaj gives children a good opportunity to study in a good institution, gives someone less opportunity, and some people get no opportunity to be made as human. As a result, discrimination is created. This leads to some of the offenses of child trafficking. For this reason, he emphasized the change in attitude.

Then in 1974 child-friendly laws were made in this country. Later, in 2013, new child laws were made more time-bound.
