New Delhi, May 25 (PTI) Objecting to the use of term “divyang” to address people with disabilities, a disability rights group has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urging him to withdraw the notification renaming viklangjan as divyangjan in Hindi nomenclature of Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities.
According to a recent government order, the Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities will now be known as Divyangjan Sashaktikaran Vibhag in Hindi, dropping the word viklangjan from its previous nomenclature.
