Nadimul Haque speaks on the Right of Persons with Disabilities Bill, 2014 | FULL TRANSCRIPT

Sir, firstly on behalf of my party All India Trinamool Congress, and also personally, Sir, I wholeheartedly support this Bill. This is a Bill that has come in the correct time. We see that the the number of categories for physically and mentally challenged people have increased from seven to twenty one. We welcome the move.

There is one thing I would like the Minister to make sure. Reservation given in this Bill to specially abled people is four per cent. I would request you to make sure that none of these vacancies are left unfulfilled. Please make sure that they are fulfilled.
