They stressed the importance of ensuring that the 2016 Act is effectively implemented, providing necessary support and facilities to empower individuals with disabilities.
The Divyang Mahapanchayat concluded with a collective resolution to continue advocating for the rights and welfare of the disabled community. The participants expressed their hope for positive action from the government in addressing their concerns and ensuring a more inclusive and accessible society for all.
