Railways to be disabled-friendly: Prabhu


Though the act giving rights to disabled came into effect in 1995, the society still needs to change its mindset towards disabled people, he said.

Prabhu said wheelchairs were available at the railway stations in Delhi as part of some companies’ corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy, and asked the private sector to contribute more in this connection.

He also said there were elevators in many stations.

The railway minister asked more people to help out to get “sukh aur anand” (mental satisfaction), and not as part of CSR.

He said disabled people’s “dharm” (duty) should be to always strive to go forward, while the “karm” (also duty) of others should be the help them as much as they can.

Delhi’s Indraprastha College for Women was also recognised for its efforts in making the educational environment disabled-friendly.
