Chandigarh July 6- Haryana Chief Minister Mr Manohar Lal who was deeply moved by the inability of a mother who had to run from pillar to post to get a disability certificate for her son so that he gets a handicapped pension of Rs 1,200 per month, announced during his public meeting at Kanina today that henceforth no handicapped would be referred to a doctor to prove his disability, but the doctor would be called to examine and issue certificate of the disability on the spot.
Not only this, the Chief Minister also announced that henceforth a monthly handicapped pension of Rs 1,200 would also be admissible to those suffering from 60 per cent disability. At present, this pension is given to those having 70 per cent disability.
The Chief Minister was moved when a female namely Sushila, a resident of village Barak tried to see him because she was fed-up by making repeated rounds of hospital and the concerned department to get a certificate of disability issued for her son. The Chief Minister directed that she be allowed to the stage and he gave her a patient hearing. It was then that the Chief Minister made announcements favouring the physically challenged persons.
