THE creation of an inclusive and accessible society should be the ideal of every democratic government. However, access to equal opportunities, quality education, health services, clean water, sustainable energy, housing, pedestrian-friendly roads and footpaths, safe public transport, and an eco-friendly environment are not easy to come by in developing countries. For most persons with disabilities, this lack of accessibility becomes an existential problem.
The metro Busses in Punjab are said to be accessible for the persons with disability, and this is one of the best project of Nawaz’s Government. It should be highly appreciated, the way PWDs are considered a part of society and had been included in such developmental reforms in Pakistan.
I expect the same with the projects being carried out in Karachi.
