ISLAMABAD: Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Ahmed Shah said on Wednesday that the job quota reserved for persons with disabilities as per Constitution should be implemented in the country in letter and spirit.
Khursheed Shah, in a statement on the International Day of Persons with Disabilities which was observed on Wednesday, said no one should underestimate the disabled who were playing a very constructive role for the country’s development and prosperity.
He urged the quarters concerned to further enhance the disabled’s quota in jobs so that they could work shoulder to shoulder along with the normal people in all spheres of life.
Khursheed Shah especially mentioned the performance of Pakistan’s Blind Cricket Team, who were performing well during the ongoing Blind Cricket World Cup being played in South Africa.
He said, “Our Blind Cricket Team has already won the world cup and I wish them a success this time as well.”
“Today is a day to pledge our commitment towards our unwavering support to persons with disabilities and let us all work together to create a world where persons with disabilities can scale new heights of success without any obstacles,” he added.
