Udupi, May 16: The State Federation of Disabled Persons’ Associations has urged authorities to give more publicity to government schemes aimed at the welfare of persons with disabilities. 

Addressing pressperson on Saturday, Wilfred Gomes, president of the federation, said, "There were about 18,000 persons with disabilities in the district. The government had formulated many schemes for their welfare. But many were not even aware of these schemes and consequently were not able to take its advantage. The authorities should make arrangements to provide scheme benefits in one or two visits rather making them do eight to 10 visits."

K. Jagadish Bhat, vice-president of the district unit of the federation, said that those with disabilities had a lot of talent.
He had formed a “Huli Vesha” team of differently abled persons. Since many differently abled persons youth urged him, he had also started a Yakshagana team of differently abled persons.

Last year, he and another person with disability Chandrakanth had presented a Yakshagana episode during the annual Udupi Utsava.

Chandrakanth had club foot and had got surgery done to correct it here at a cost of Rs. 1.3 lakh. But he did not know that under a government scheme, he could get upto Rs. 1 lakh for the surgery.

The federation did not have an office space of its own. Hence the authorities should provide some space for its office.
