Tamil Nadu government promises to implement disability laws after protests
By Newshook 05-Sep-2019
The protest was jointly organised by December 3 Movement, Tamil Nadu Association for the Rights of All Types of Differently-Abled (TARATDAC), National Federation of the Blind and Tamil Nadu State Federation of the Deaf. All the organisations pointed out that the Disability Commissioner of the differently-abled welfare department B Maheswari or the concerned departments are unable to work for the welfare of people with disabilities in the state. This inefficiency to provide education or employment is affecting community members in many ways.

Last year, people with disabilities had come together to protest against the inefficiency of government in implementing the act. Protestors met with state ministers who promised swift action and formation of rules in the state. Later, the central government asked them to nominate an independent commission.
TMN Deepak, founder of December 3 Movement, was leading the protest. He says that unless people with disabilities get their rights, the protsts are going to continue.
