Govt working to empower disabled, bring them into the mainstream: CM

Thursday, 26 January 2023 | PNS | Lucknow

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath stated that the state government is working with determination to empower the disabled and bring them into the mainstream of society and development.

On Wednesday, during the Janata Darshan programme organised at the Mahant Digvijaynath Smriti Auditorium of the Gorakhnath Temple in Gorakhpur, the chief minister said, "Divyangjan need encouragement and cooperation more than sympathy. The administration and departmental officers should make sure that the appropriate resources, equipment and certificates are available on a priority basis to Divyangjan.”

Over 300 people came to meet the chief minister at the Janata Darshan programme. The chief minister assured them that every problem would be resolved in a quick and satisfactory manner.

Some Divyangjan came to the Janata Darshan to request a tricycle, while Divyang with mental problems and their family members came to ask for issuance of a certificate.

After learning of their issues, the chief minister gave direction to quickly provide tricycles or motorised tricycles to the needy individuals. Along with this, he gave instructions that no obstacles of any type should stand in the way of giving certificates to people with mental disabilities.

On the requests of several visitors for financial assistance for the treatment of serious diseases, the chief minister said that funds would be provided as soon as the estimates were ready. "No one's treatment will be hampered due to lack of money," Chief Minister Yogi asserted.

He instructed that all revenue and police-related matters be resolved with complete transparency and fairness, stressing that injustice should not be done to anyone. “If someone is encroaching on another person's property forcibly, then he should be taught a lesson according to the law,” he said.

The chief minister stated that victims should be treated with compassion and should be assisted.

Along with blessing the children who had come with some complainants, the chief minister also gave them chocolates as an encouragement to study hard.
