Mokokchung, March 26 (EMN): Care and Support Society (CSC) and supported by RCI- North East Coordination Committee (NEZCC) conducted a one-day awareness programme for grassroots workers on disability issues at Sangtemla hall in Mokokchung town on March 26.

Speaking at the programme, ADC of Mokokchung, Shashank Pratap Singh, asserted that constitutional and legal rights are not enough for the differently-abled persons. He has rather advocated certain recognition and special provision to empower them.

He has called upon the grassroots workers to have consideration for the differently-abled persons by addressing to their needs and also pay special attention in order to deliver schemes and programmes as envisaged by the centre.

Singh asserted that the differently-abled persons would feel real political and economic empowerment only when those schemes are implemented in total.

Also speaking on the occasion, the Mokokchung superintendent of police Vishal advocated that providing preferential rights plus services and attention would help the differently-abled persons to expose their special capabilities.

In this connection, he urged the grassroots workers to report to the concerned authority on policies needed to bring about changes and empower the differently-abled person.

Limasangba Aier, DEO Mokokchung, and Rev. C Wati Longchar, ABAM property and finance secretary, also spoke on the occasion.

The second session was conducted by resource person Dr. Imli Lemtur, MD (Paediatrician) from IMHD. He spoke on “Early identification and intervention schemes and benefits,” while Arenli Jamir, DDPO project coordinator, spoke on RPD Act 2016.
