Tamil Nadu disability groups give a push to greater sensitization of people in positions of authority

Recently, TMN Deepak, Co-founder of December 3 Movement visited the famous Kilpauk Stadium in Chennai to watch a Indian Premier League (IPL) match. Deepak who is a wheelchair user was denied an exclusive parking space by concerned officials in spite of the law clearly stating that disabled parking spaces are mandatory at public places.
In spite of talking to higher officials, Deepak could not get his parking slot. This is not an isolated incident. People with disabilities across India struggle to fight for their rights, mainly because concerned officials are ignorant about these rights.
