A delegation of persons with disabilities led by Girdhari Lal Raina, MLC, met Governor N.N. Vohra at the Raj Bhavan today.

Raina apprised the Governor about the various difficulties being faced by specially-abled persons in the state, an official statement said.

He requested that an effective mechanism should be put in place for issuing disability certificates and reservation in jobs for disabled Kashmiri migrants.

He said the existing Coordination Committee on Disability constituted under the J&K Person’s With Disability Act 1998, should be renamed as the State Advisory Board under the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act-2016.

He said there should be provision of ‘disability-friendly infrastructure’ in all public places.

The Governor observed that he would address the Social Welfare Minister about the demands of the delegation.
