PM: Don’t neglect the physically-challenged people


Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday urged all to not neglect those who are physically and mentally-challenged, as they could show their mettle if given scope.“This is my fervent call to teachers of all educational institutions, to guardians, as well as people from all strata to not neglect the disabled because if scope is created for them, they could show their mettle and worthiness,” she said.

Sheikh Hasina made these statements while inaugurating the five-nation multinational ICRC T20 International Cricket Tournament, to be held from September 2-10, for the physically-challenged at the Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium yesterday morning.The tournament kicked off in the city seeking to promote social inclusion of those who are physically-challenged and encourage more cricketing nations to have their own cricket programmes for such people.
