The disabled in Pakistan continue to plead for jobs
KARACHI:Disabled people from Hyderabad, Larkana and Naushahro Feroze have been living under a small tent on a pavement outside Karachi Press Club since March 1, waiting for the acceptance of their demands.
These disabled have demanded jobs, as the Sindh government has reserved a two percent employment quota for people with disabilities.
“We’ve been here for more than three months. Most of us are physically handicapped. We also have a couple of blind friends. All we are asking for is to get us employed. We are not illiterate people. I have done my matriculation. Some of my friends have also been to school. So we can be employed. Besides, there is a two per cent quota in jobs,” said a disabled man, Abdullah, to a private media outlet.
