Imphal, Aug 28: Fund allocated by the state government for the Disable Persons in the budget is lower than the food arrangement made for Non-Manipuri officials visiting the Sangai Festival, said Tongbram Romio Singh.
Speaking on one day awareness program held under the theme “Empowering Towards Disable” held at Meitei Christian Church in Patsoi Lamkhai today, Tongbram Romio Singh, President of All Manipur Handicapped Persons Welfare Association (AMHPWA) expressed that the support from both the public and government is a must for the welfare of disable persons.
However, whatever the state government has done for the disable persons is just for the namesake, he added.
Romio said that a minimum budget for more than fifty thousand disable persons in the state is allocated by the state government while crores of rupees is spent on food arrangement at Sangai Festival for Non-Manipuri officials.
MLAs’ and Ministers have even brought up the issues of the disable persons during the state assembly session, however, none didn’t bother to raise their voice to make an increment in the allocated budget.
Seems emphasis towards the Non-Manipuri people is more important than the disable of the state, he added.
Romio also said that disable persons of the state must not feel any kind of discouragement by the act of the state government, instead work hard to live independently.
Parents of the disable children’s also need to expose the talent of their children to showcase it to the whole world rather than keeping it hidden, he added.
