Disabled protest in Nangarhar calling on the government to fulfill their demands

Dozens of disabled gather in eastern Nangarhar province on Saturday and rallied a protest, demanding the government to provide them with shelter, jobs, education, monthly stipends and other facilities.

The protest is expected to continue for another day, as more people with disabilities are invited from districts to join them.

One protestor said the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs, Martyrs and Disabled failed to fulfill their promise of disbursing their salaries through banks.

The Disabled Association chairman, Masood Safi, said residential plots had been approved for the disabled, but they have not been claimed yet, as they are grabbed by powerful individuals.

The protesting disabled issued a 15-article resolution, asking the government to provide them with shelters, salaries, education to their children, their pending salaries of previous years and job opportunities.

They also demanded hajj quota, business opportunities and free medical treatment in hospitals.
