MAHA PROTEST IN DELHI ON 5th MAY 2015 FOR DEMANDING THE ISLRTC AS AN AUTONOMOUS BODY.
Thousands of people gathered at Shastri Bhawan, New Delhi on 5th May, 2015 to create pressure on the Government to pass the ISLRTC as an autonomous boday
More than 5,000 deaf people from all over the country gathered with just one hope in their heart, that the ISLRTC is an autonomous boday and that the disabled citizens of India do not have to wait another 2 or 3 years to get the ISLRTC as an autonomous body.
The Deaf Community in India is one step closer to getting autonomy for ISLRTC! The meeting with MSJE Minister Shri Gehlot, Secretary Shri Verma and other official resulted in a promise for a meeting the PM Modi within 15 days. All work on ISLRTC under NIHH will be stopped until then. Deaf Leaders are planning another demonstration on May 20 if Shri Narender Modi does not meet them or if their demands are not met.
The great part was the media--TV and newspaper--they covered the news in a very positive way. We were posting clippings, links and clips later. Congratulations, NAD and other organizations that worked together.
