APSRTC and the Physically challenged
- APSRTC and the Physically challenged
In the APSRTC buses about 40 per cent of the seats are reserved for
ladies. Two seats are reserved for senior citizens. But just one
specific seat is reserved for the physically challenged! It may be a
blind person who has to search for that reserved seat and also know
whether it is already occupied by another physically challenged. HE IS
EXPECTED TO SEE!!!!
A polio afflicted person who can only crawl is expected to go to that
one specific seat. The physically challenged may be a former army
officer who lost his limbs while fighting the enemy or a police
officer who lost his limbs while performing his duty.
IS IT NOT BASIC DECENCY TO GIVE SEATS TO THE PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED AS
FIRST PREFERENCE? LADIES OR MEN, EVERYONE MUST GIVE HIS/HER SEAT TO
THE PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED.THAT IS MINIMUM DECENCY.
