October 29, 2017
Chief commissioner of department of empowerment of persons with disabilities Kamlesh Kumar Pandey, said that the state governments are not serious on social and economic betterment of disabled people and still have lot of work to do.
Nearly 2,300 job posts for disabled people are still vacant in Madhya Pradesh. Out of total 3500 posts, the state government so far has only filled 1200 seats, said the chief commissioner.
But he also appreciated the MP government's special programmes for disabled people.
Pandey said that government is providing 6 % reservations even though the act had kept only 3%.
The MP government is also giving scholarship to the disabled from 6 to 18 years age group. But other governments are not running such programmes, said Pandey.
