Delivering the inaugural address at the South India conference of the All India Banks’ Physically Handicapped Employees’ Welfare Federation at the Town Hall here on Sunday, the Minister said that the department officials were instructed to check whether appointments were made according to the Supreme Court directive. “Officials should ensure 3 per cent reservation for A and B category while C and D category people should be given 5 per cent reservation in the appointment,” he said adding that it was Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, who extended Rs 1,000 pension to all persons with 75 per cent disabilities.

Responding to various demands of the Federation, Swamy said that the government is ready to hold discussion with organisation leaders. However, he said, as the election code of conduct is in force, no assurance can be given till the end of Panchayatiraj elections.

Speaking on the occasion, Federation President A C Rai said that an MLC seat should be reserved for physically challenged persons. The move will be of great help in finding solutions to the problems faced by physically challenged persons in the State, he added.
The Government should take initiative to provide free and unlimited bus pass to all persons, who have more than 90 per cent disabilities.

Atleast 2 stalls should be reserved for physically challenged persons in all commercial establishments of the government and semi-government sectors, he urged.

Further, he demanded that the government should sanction atleast Rs 10,000 to families, which has more than two disabled persons.

Sri Gurudeva Datta Samsthanam Pontiff Sri Gurudevananda Swamiji blessed the occasion. District-in-Charge Minister J Krishna Palemar, MP Nalin Kumar Kateel, MLAs N Yogish Bhat, B Ramanath Rai, U T Khader and Mangalore City Corporation Mayor Rajani Dugganna were present.
