At the time of travel, attending meeting at govt institution and attending colleges etc, it is always a challenge for the disabled person because disabled friendly infrastructure and facilities are not available on those places.
Most of the time they have have to wear a diaper because they couldn’t use the toilets.
When request for help raised then disabled is treated as a piece of luggage. This needs to stop!
According to The Disability Rights bill, there need to be facilities available for those with disabilities. The multiple Ministries have been talking of making their respective infrastructure disabled friendly but in reality, they are still being humiliated every single time because of poor implementation.
Following are the brief requests to PMO@India to implement disabled friendly measures-
Accessible bathrooms with proper space inside the bathroom, clean and higher toilets, low sinks so we can easily wash our hands.
Enough space between seats so it is easy to fit a standard size wheelchair between the seats and we can shift onto our seats when needed.
Private space with curtains around the space for when we need to change. Often, they need to change some medical accessories and the bathrooms are too small for them to role around to change the accessories, as well as have no privacy.
Proper infrastructure to cross roads.
Sign the petition and ask PM Modi to implement measures to make the Indian Infrastructure and Public facilities disabled friendly.
