“The present situation of eligible bachelors not getting brides is also because of the skewed male-female ratio,” he said. “Had there been a proper implementation of the PCPNDT Act, the situation would have been better.”

He added: “The situation is so bad that many parents and bachelors are going into depression for being unable to find suitable brides. So, to highlight this issue, we took out this procession. We want the government to take some steps towards balancing the sex ratio.”
