Nizamabad: Zilla Parishad chairman Dadannagari Vittal Rao said that disabled persons are in no way lesser than others in any field. Women, Children, Disabled and Octogenarian Welfare department had organised a programme on International Day of Disabled Persons at Rajiv Gandhi Auditorium in Nizamabad on Tuesday. ZP chairman D Vittal Rao, District Collector M Rammohan Rao and MLA Bigala Ganesh Gupta inaugurated the programme.

Speaking on the occasion, ZP chairman Vittal Rao told the disabled not to worry about their physical disability and encouraged them to work with concentration and perseverance with their mental strength.

The State government, like parents, will always support them with various welfare schemes. Pre-metric and post-metric scholarships are being offered and a pension of Rs 3,016 is being provided to all the eligible disabled persons, he added.

District Collector M Rammohan Rao said that they should dedicate their lives to help the disabled to live in peace and added that celebrating a special day means having to hold these events throughout the year.
