Deaf, speech impaired bikers journey from Kerala to Jammu to fight for rights
A group of deaf and speech impaired bikers from Kerala made a road trip to Jammu to make a silent appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, for their rights.
They said that while they were able to complete their education until Class 12, there were no educational institutions that help them study further than that. They have demanded a campus to be built for their future development.
They started the bike rally on 17 December 2017 and their final stop is in Delhi where they will drive to the Prime Minister’s Office. They say that India has more than 45 lakh hearing impaired and speech impaired citizens and they should have the same rights as everyone else.
