Demand for barrier free access raised again

Imphal, July 6: The Relief Centre for Differently-Abled Persons Manipur while describing the social welfare department as the most likely place for the differently-abled to get succor raised doubt whether the department has been failing to dispense its responsibility of alleviating their lives.
In a press note released by secretary of the organization Ch Lokeshwari today, the organization asked people to study the priorities of the minister in charge of the department Nemcha Kipgen and provide their findings whether she is working for the welfare of the differently abled or not.
On their mouths, the minister and officers keep chanting that barrier free access will be created in offices though even they had failed to install barrier free access in their own department. The BFA involves the provision of alternative means of access to steps (e.g. ramps and lifts) for those with physical or other disabilities. This inability of the department to create infrastructure for smooth movement of differently abled quite clearly suggests that the department does not welcome them in their offices, the centre stated in the note. It raised suspicion whether the department is ignoring the installation of barrier free access intentionally to discourage them for visiting the offices of the social welfare department.
The organization has taken serious note of the present state of affairs on the indifference of the minister and officials of the social welfare department and directly appealed to chief minister Nongthongbam Biren to peruse into the matter.
