Disabled yet to get increased assistance: Pondy CPI(M)

Pondicherry Oct. 3. An announcement made by the Chief Minister, N. Rangasamy, almost a year ago that physically handicapped persons will be paid an enhanced monthly assistance of Rs. 400 is yet to see the light of the day, according to the CPI (M) secretary, T. Murugan.

Criticising the delay in implementing the promise, Mr. Murugan said here today that the disabled persons, who repaid the bank loans, should be extended fresh loans to expand their self-employment projects.

The quota in government jobs was not properly implemented. Mr. Murugan said private establishments should be directed to provide jobs for the disabled.
