In India, 250 million people are suffering poverty and humiliation," he said in an address at the National Institute of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj here. Satyarthi delivered a talk on 'Children's rights and role of district Collectors' as part of the 3rd Management Development Programme on Rural Development Leadership for 45 officers who came from all over the country, a release from the institute said.
