Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu today said eliminating discriminatory tendencies should be the first step in empowering differently-abled people. Speaking at a cultural programme organised by Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti in Hyderabad, Mr Naidu said nobody has any right to ill-treat or discriminate against anybody, particularly persons with disabilities. 

According to an official release, vice-president said that it should be the collective responsibility of the society, people and institutions to support Divyangjan and empower them to lead a dignified life. The Vice President further said it is also important to enhance the mobility of persons with disabilities and create barrier-free environment wherever needed, particularly in public places. 

He said that the government has launched a National Action Plan for Skill Development to impart skill training to 25 lakh people with disabilities by 2022, to enhance their employability. Mr Naidu also urged the private sector to create adequate employment opportunities for persons with disabilities.
