 First-ever before a new fragrant for disability has arrived i.e. the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana for every person with a disability. The Government of India has announced in a bid to ensure free food to all eligible persons with disabilities (Divyang). While most states across the country are preparing to implement the PMGKAY, as a concerned person and Veteran disability activist; I would like to appeal the concern department authority agencies of all districts to take interest and compassionately look into the needs of persons with disabilities. Thereby guiding and assisting the beneficiaries of what necessities/requirements to be taken care of on their part as well, as there are limited opportunities available for a person with disabilities and the program PMGKAY will be of great help to them. Because proven fact there are around 29,631 persons with disabilities (according to 2011 disability census) and indeed it has increased more in number today. Therefore, I also request the beneficiaries or beneficiaries of concern parents/caregivers to put effort and cooperate in claiming the good opportunity provided by the central government, and to the concerned authority agencies to extend support in practical philanthropist gesture on humanitarian ground to the needy disabilities under the scheme.

Through this press release, I would like to mention some of the important Articles based on the Guaranteed Act of 2016-2017 and fundamental freedom of all persons with disabilities as a trend of Social awakening especially the concerned government agencies who are dealing with disability affairs and down to the Villages and Colony level, when performing disabilities work and amenities to deal in a holistic manner. Because the disabled never ask what is not theirs. So, let us be empathetic and not refuse to help.
1.      National support Mission and legal capacity, under section 12D subsection (1) for parents, siblings, immediate community and Local leader for assisting the person with a disability in exercising their legal capacity for Support Decision Making (SDM)

5. Under the Act of 1995, Article 32 of the constitution of India. Misuse of Disability Fun/Money is a penalty of Rs 20000/- with 2 years’ imprisonment or both.
NB: My dear fellow Parents/ caregivers/beneficiaries unless and until all the District Parents Association comes together and Form the State Federation for Disabilities in Nagaland. Our legitimate rights of the disabilities will never crack the stumbling block of all development activities for disabilities.
