BANNU, 11 January: Physically disabled persons have established an association to protect their rights and launch welfare activities for other persons with disabilities.

As per details, Qazi Noor Rahman was elected as the president and Khurram Shahzad as general secretary of the association during a meeting held here on Wednesday. Other members of the cabinet would be chosen in the next meeting of the association.

Large number of physically disabled and blind persons, president of the disabled persons association, Lakki Marwat Asmatullah and deputy director of the Social Welfare Department, district Bannu Shafqat Amin were also present on the occasion.

President of the newly established association Qazi Noor Rahman said the body had been formed to initiate an organized struggle for the rights of disabled persons.

“It has been observed that persons with disability are usually deprived of their rights. We will raise our voice on every forum for our rights,” he pledged.

He also demanded of the government to raise the job quota for disabled persons in government departments.

“The Punjab government has announced 3% quota for disabled persons in government job but regrettably the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has yet to announce its policy for handicap persons. We urged the provincial government to announce quota for disabled persons in every department of the provincial set up,” Qazi Noor Rahman added.

Shafqat Amin, deputy director of the Social Welfare Department said that more than 800 disabled persons were registered with them in Bannu district. He added that the department had provided every kind of support to these persons in terms of cash, wheelchair, education and health. He told the disabled persons that there is a specific procedure for getting assistance from the department and every person with disability ought to know about the procedure and should follow it in order to get benefits.
