Divyangjans seek PM’s intervention

ITANAGAR, Mar 2: The All Arunachal Pradesh Divyangjan Welfare Society (AAPDWS) in a representation to the prime minister on Saturday sought to draw his attention to various issues faced by the divyangjans in the state, and sought his early intervention to address them.
Despite the state government having sanctioned Rs 20 crore for the construction of a composite regional centre for the wellbeing of the differently-abled persons, the project is not being executed at the designated place, the AAPDWS stated in the representation.
It also appealed for granting all such central sector schemes to the divyangjans in the state, through the AAPDWS, for proper and effective implementation of the sanctioned projects.
The AAPDWS demanded early sanctioning of fund for construction of a vocational and industrial skill development training centre in Nirjuli, besides early establishment of an office for the AAPDWS, and grouping of the state’s differently-abled persons under the AAPDWS, which is a government registered society.
Its demands include immediate posting of a separate state commissioner for the divyangjans of Arunachal Pradesh, construction of 48 ramps and toilets at various government offices in the capital complex, and awarding such projects to the members of the AAPDWS, among other things.
