MP to look into quota for physically challenged

Staff Reporter

Need for enhancing pension underscored



CAN'T IGNORE THEIR SPIRIT: Physically challenged persons at the Zilla Parishad office to attend a conference on their problems at Kurnool on Friday.

KURNOOL: Member of Parliament Kotla Jayasuryaprakasa Reddy has said society should empathise with the physically challenged if it were to call itself a civilised one. Addressing a meeting in connection with the 21st anniversary of the physically challenged welfare association here on Friday, he said as an MP he would bring pressure on the administration to implement three per cent quota for the physically challenged.

He said the physically challenged had many support schemes but very few of them were being sincerely implemented. He underscored the need for enhancing pension from Rs. 70.

MLA M.A. Gafoor, Collector Vikas Raj, Zilla Parishad Floor leader Y. Ramaiah, DCC secretary M. Sudhakar Babu and others were present.
