During his address, Dr. Jitendra Singh said that from the day PM Narendra Modi took oath as the Prime Minister of India, certain drastic steps were taken by him for the welfare of Divyangs. Be that the fee remission for Divyangs in Civil Services Examination, two choices of home cadre for Divyangs qualifying civil services examination, increase in reservation for Divyangs from 3 percent to 4 percent, increase in the Divyang pension etc., every other step has been taken by this government for the welfare of Divyangs, he added.

For the welfare of Divyangs, Dr. Jitendra Singh said that 15000 posts meant for Divyangs which were earlier not filled were filled under a special drive by the government which was only possible under PM Narendra Modi who suggested that the term ‘Divyang’ (Divine Body) instead of ‘Viklang’ be used for persons with disability.

Dr. Jitendra Singh also said that for making India reach the top leaving behind every other developed nation in terms of development in coming years, the Divyangs cannot be left out, they also need to contribute in the national development of nation for the next twenty-five years of Journey of ‘Sankalp se Siddhi’ so that their contribution will too be written in the golden words when India would be achieving its centenary of independence.

Dr. Jitendra Singh further said that providing ‘Digital Life Certificate’ to the pensioners using ‘Face Recognition Technology’ has been one of the drastic steps taken by the government for the convenience of the pensioners who were earlier facing many inconveniences regarding continuation of their pensions.

Appreciating SAKSHAM for organising this ‘Divyang Parivar Maha-Samelan’ at Kathua today, Dr. Jitendra said that this ‘Maha-Samelan’ organised is also a step towards ‘Sankalp se Siddhi’ and is the first-ever ‘Maha-Samelan’ organised so far for the welfare of Divyangs.
