Differently-abled finding a place in Indian politics From ministerial portfolios to female panchayats


1
Though many in India are ignorant about inclusion and rehabilitation of disabled people, the differently-abled are recognising the need to tap their own population. Despite the challenges, not only prominent politicians but also the disabled in rural areas are now actively participating in politics, with female contenders also joining in to change things for the disabled.
Even after the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Bill was passed last year without any mention of embracing reservations in electoral seats for persons with disabilities, participation of differently-abled people in politics did not take a back seat.
