Differently-abled persons from the district submitted a petition to the District Collector on Monday demanding more work days under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme(MGNREGS).

Citing their inability to find work, the petitioners called for providing employment for the differently-abled on all days without any restrictions. The rural wage employment guarantee scheme should provide employment on a priority basis for the differently-abed without any caveats and provide full wages without deductions for the work done under the scheme.
