New schemes for persons with disabilities sought

Sangareddy: “Education for all the disabled and jobs for all the disabled are the only ways by which we could ensure dignity for them,” said GN Nagaraj, All India Vice-President, National Platform for Rights of the Disabled (NPRD), in an exclusive interview with The Hans India, on the concluding day of the two-day State level conference of the five-year-old organisation, which was held in Sangareddy on Sunday and Monday.
“It was only after the movements launched by NPRD that Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, 2016 came into force. The new Act has certain pitfalls, but we will strive to ensure that the fruits of the Act reach every disabled person living in every nook and cranny of our country,” he asserted.
