The Punjab Networking of Positive People Society has made a plea to Centre to pass the HIV/AIDS Bill, 2007. Addressing a press conference in the city, Jagjit Singh Maan, Founder Chairman of the NGO, said, “It was in 2007 when with the help of different social organisations, the HIV/AIDS bill was drafted. The bill proposes that all HIV/AIDS patients should be able to raise their voice against injustice.”

He said in the last couple of years, discrimination against HIV patients has spiralled. The society strongly advocates immediate implementation of the bill. Maan also said, “I will now meet Manish Tiwari, MP, and request him to raise the issue in the Parliament. Others present at the press conference included Dr Manjit Singh, Mehar Singh, Satnam Singh Dhaliwal, President, Universal Human Rights Organisation.”
