Equal opportunities for Divyangjan
12/4/2023 10:39:13 PM
On the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir witnessed a powerful reaffirmation of commitment to building a society free from discrimination, where every individual, including Divyangjan, can thrive.
Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, in a resounding address, emphasized the government’s unwavering dedication to fostering inclusivity, justice, and equity for persons with disabilities (PWDs), ensuring they have equal opportunities to realize their full potential and aspirations.
In a world that often marginalizes those with disabilities, the Lieutenant Governor’s commitment is not merely rhetoric but a call to action, reminding us of the imperative to dismantle barriers and create an environment where diversity is celebrated and embraced.
The very essence of a just society lies in its ability to uplift and empower every citizen, irrespective of their physical or cognitive abilities.
The term “Divyangjan,” coined by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, encapsulates the spirit of recognizing the inherent strengths and unique capabilities of persons with disabilities. It signifies a departure from traditional labels that focus solely on limitations, instead emphasizing the diverse talents and potential that individuals with disabilities possess.
Jammu and Kashmir’s commitment to this inclusive terminology signals a paradigm shift in societal attitudes towards PWDs, reinforcing the idea that their contributions are integral to the fabric of our communities.
Equal opportunities lie at the heart of the Lieutenant Governor’s vision. Creating an environment where individuals with disabilities can access education, employment, healthcare, and recreation on par with their able-bodied counterparts is pivotal to breaking down the barriers that have long hindered their progress.
It is a commitment not just to legislate change but to actively pursue policies that facilitate the integration of PWDs into every facet of society.
Realizing one’s potential and dreams should not be contingent on physical or cognitive abilities. Lieutenant Governor Sinha’s emphasis on providing avenues for persons with disabilities to pursue their aspirations resonates with the fundamental principle of equality.
Whether it’s through vocational training, skill development programs, or accessible infrastructure, the government’s role is crucial in creating an environment where every individual, regardless of disability, can envision and achieve a meaningful future.
From implementing universal design principles in infrastructure projects to ensuring that educational institutions are equipped with the necessary resources for inclusive education, the government’s commitment extends to tangible, actionable measures.
Accessibility is not just a physical concept; it encompasses attitudes, policies, and opportunities that foster an inclusive society.
