Specially-abled persons in Gilgit-Baltistan suffering due to bureaucratic hurdles

Gilgit:  Specially-abled persons in Gilgit-Baltistan area of Pakistan are facing troubles in getting  education and job quota due to bureaucratic hurdles, media reports said.

These people are suffering from both discrimination by the government as well as their own health hurdles.

The top representatives of the Gilgit Baltistan Disability Alliance blame the bureaucracy for their sufferings. They say that it has been in cahoots with the corrupt political class of the region and has been deliberately framing discriminatory policies. In other cases, they accuse it of negligence, reports ANI.

Speaking on the issue, Irshad Kazmi, Information Secretary of Gilgit Baltistan Disability Alliance, told ANI, "The main problem here is implementation. Bureaucracy is always against when we talk about the implementation here. Be it the implementation of disability quota or the issue of accessibility, bureaucracy has always acted as a hurdle."

He said if the issue of disability quota is spoken then there will be around 45 per cent fake people.

"If the documents are to be verified by making a Commission, then a number of people will be found who have got a government job by faking disability while the deserving specially-abled candidates are still unemployed and are stumbling here and there," he told the news agency.

The specially abled people have often protested against the government but produced no result.
