DRG with NAD and Many Other Disabled Groups are organizing a DHARNA outside the DDA, Vikas Sadan, INA, New Delhi at 2:30 pm on Monday, 16th January 2017
Greetings from National Association of the Deaf!
As you may have read already, there has been an unfortunate case of discrimination against a senior official of the Government, a person with disability.
Dr. Rishi Raj Bhati was recently appointed as the Director (Public Relations) of the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) and joined the said authority on 10th January, 2017 on deputation. Within two days of joining, Dr. Bhati was handed a relieving letter stating that the nature of the job would cause him inconvenience that would also not be in the organizations interest. The letter also stated that he was being sent back to his parent organization with immediate effect.
This is a gross violation of human rights and clearly depicts the mindset that still prevails against disability. We cannot sit quietly and must take action. For those of you based in Delhi, we, DRG with NAD and many other disabled groups are organizing a DHARNA, outside the DDA, Vikas Sadan, INA, New Delhi at 2:30 pm on Monday, 16th January 2017.
