New Delhi, 27 December
Disability rights groups today expressed dismay over the inordinate delay in introducing the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Bill in Parliament even after it was approved by the Cabinet a few days ago.
Activists of the Disabled Rights Group (DRG) and the National Platform for the Rights of the Disabled (NRPD) said they will approach major political parties to convince them to introduce the Bill when Parliament reconvenes.
“Parliament session will be convened to pass the Vote on Account in January and February. This important piece of legislation must also be taken up by both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha for enactment,” NPRD secretary Muralidharan said.
DRG convener Javed Abidi said: “We will be approaching all major political parties to garner support for this as we genuinely believe that the cause of disability is a totally non-partisan and non-political issue.”
Besides offering a
comprehensive definition of disability, the legislation which will replace the
Persons with Disability (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act 1995, provides for an increase in the quota for persons with disabilities from three per cent to five per cent in government jobs.
It also makes private companies accountable for creating a disabled-friendly environment.
As a mark of protest, disability rights activists will hold candle-light vigils in various parts of the country on December 31, the members said.
In Delhi, the vigil will be held outside the Vice-President's House as he is the chairman of Rajya Sabha, they said.
