Tapping the potential of disabled a must: M Venkaiah Naidu

New Delhi: Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu on Wednesday called for a change in attitudes to enable people with disabilities to realise their potential in an enabling environment.
While releasing the Inclusiveness and Accessibility Index that enables organisations to reflect on their policies and organisational culture in aid and support of differently-abled people, he said, “Our mission is ‘MODI’, that is, ‘Making of a Developed India’.Such an India cannot be visualised without empowering differently-abled persons,” he said. The index, based on which organisations can be ranked, encourages them to recruit more disabled people and give them equal opportunities.
