Even after RPWD 2016, disabled students in Punjab are denied basic facilities
Disabled students at the Mahanta Gurbanta Dass Schoolin Bathinda in Punjab are going through a tough time. The school does not have even basic facilities for the students. This is even after repeated appeals by school authorities.
The school even lacks basic facilities like medical aid, a van and smart classes.
Maninder Kaur, who is the principal of the Mahanta Gurbanta school, says school authorities have written a letter to concerned officials asking for a school bus and a smart infrastructure. But no action has been taken yet.
The disabled students at the school are extremely talented and bright. But they undergo hardships due to the insensitivity of government authorities towards students with disabilities.
Basic clinical help is need of the hour at any school with disabled students.
