Jaipur: Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot met Divyang (differently abled) children at his residence on the occasion of International Day of Disabled Persons and asserted his commitment to working for every section of the society, including Divyangs.
The CM also met hearing-impaired children from Darshan School and Vocational Centre for the differently abled. Former chief election commissioner and patron of the Darshan school, Navin Chawla, informed the CM about providing these children with employment-oriented courses. Former chief secretary Salahuddin Ahmed was also present on this occasion.
The chief minister also met winners of an essay competition from Rajkiya Badhir School. The competition was organised by Vision, a philanthropic initiative to mark former PM Indira Gandhi’s birth anniversary. On this occasion former Chairman of RTDC, Rajeev Arora and Chairman of the institution Krishnakumar Haritwal were also present.
The CM also flagged off a mobile clinic van of Mind Route Foundation to spread awareness on mental health. He said everyone must create awareness on the danger of growing mental health problems among the youth.
Later while, issuing a stern warning to those trying to provoke unemployed youth into holding agitations, CM Gehlot made a scathing remark on such politicians and said that he will not bow down in front of them. “There are several young men who leave their jobs to play a part in politics of the unemployed, but we will not bow down before them,” Gehlot said. The CM asked Chief Secretary DB Gupta to figure out a mechanism so that recruitment in court is not hampered time and again. CM was addressing a gathering on occasion of oath ceremony of the Sachivalaya Karmchari Sangh. CM assured the gathering that recruitment will be completed soon. He took also on the Central government over economic slowdown.
CS too addressed the gathering and said, “We will start a drive to dispose files that are of lesser importance. The idea is being tried in HCMRIPA. Like civil service officers, Secretriate service officers will also undergo training thrice in their service period and around 1,375 officials will be provided training.”
