Physically challenged people of Kathua received wheelchairs under the Civic Action Program at Hiranagar Police Station today. However, they complained about not receiving pension since 3-4 months. They also requested the Government to increase their pension as it is their only source of income.
“I was 3 years old when I stopped walking. Doctor told that I was suffering from polio. I receive 1000 rupees as monthly pension for my expenditures which too less for a normal life. I request the Governor to increase it to 3,000-5,000 per month for every handicapped.” said a handicapped person
“Since 3-4 months we haven’t received our pension. It is our only source of food. LG Sir should look into the matter because it is very difficult to live with this basic amount.” added another
