Govt to declare holiday on Nov 14

"Dilli for Children" seeks to develop a "sense of belongingness" for the city among children, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said at a press conference. The government will organise amusement activities including song and drama contests, sports activities, plays, fun food, and other children-related activities. "We intend to dig out the cultural, entertainment, and sports skills of the children by ensuring their collective participation in the happiness festivals", Sisodia said.

Delhi government-run schools and offices will be closed on November 14, which is celebrated as Children's Day to mark the birth anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru, he said.

Addressing the media, Sisodia said, "Children Happiness Festival" would be organised at over 100 locations across the city on November 14. The Deputy Chief Minister also asked the private schools to close the schools so that children enrolled with them should also enjoy the fair. "This is an attempt by our government to encourage children of entire Delhi to come out of their homes and take part in the festival with full enthusiasm and energy", he said.

He said the Government would facilitate locations for the festival and different groups, including NGOs, residents' welfare societies and individuals would organise different activities for the festival.
