Jammu- Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha announced on Thursday that all government posts whether under Public Service Commission (PSC) or Jammu & Kashmir Services Selection Board will be filled within 6 months, while a legal framework will also be prepared to ensure employment opportunities to Divyangjan in private sector.

“In last financial year, 384 Divyangjan were provided government jobs. Reservation has increased from 3 to 4 percent. The posts whether under PSC or JKSSB will be filled within 6 months. We will prepare a legal framework to ensure employment opportunities to Divyangjan in private sector,” he said.

The LG made these remarks after jointly inaugurating J&K’s first festival of Inclusion, Purple Fest with Union Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment Dr. Virendra Kumar here on Thursday. The Union Minister had joined the function virtually. 

The festival aims to showcase a kaleidoscope of abilities hidden inside disabilities and celebrating resilience of Divyangjan. The Purple Festival is also a call for action to the people and exhort the society to take proactive steps in creating a more inclusive environment. 

On the occasion, the LG observed that in many areas of life, be it music, films, sports, art, or literature, persons with disabilities have achieved success and greater goals and today they are inspiring the entire society.

He said many such great personalities have proved that they have no less capability than anyone else but they have special abilities to contribute in nation building.

“Around 5000 people are participating in this unique event which is of, by, and for Divyangjan. A fully accessible event, it is an effort to showcase the minds full of courage, strength and determination of persons with special abilities,” Sinha said.

“This Festival of Inclusion will be a milestone in the journey of empowerment of Divyangjan in J&K UT. It will inspire every citizen to work unitedly for empowerment and rehabilitation of Divyangjan and to build an inclusive society,” he added.

The LG also asserted that his administration is committed to create an environment that provides equal opportunities and protects the rights of Divyangjan.

“We have achieved saturation in distribution of motorized scooties. The administration has taken over Abhinandan Home for specially-abled students,” he said

Sinha further said that there was a need for all the stakeholders, society, NGOs to adopt a multi-dimensional approach and collaborative efforts to enable persons with disabilities to realize their full individual potential.

“Private companies and individual innovators have made impressive strides in new technology in the last few years. I urge them to develop user friendly instruments for Divyangjan which will help in their rehabilitation process and empowerment,” he said.

The LG felicitated the Divyangjan Ambassadors including Para Athletes and Sportspersons for their outstanding contribution in their respective fields. He also handed over wheelchairs and assistive devices to the beneficiaries.

The two-day event will witness distribution of assistive devices, sports competitions in various disciplines, cultural events, fashion show, talent hunt and exhibition.
