Maulthaun (Sagar),

Due to initiative of Home and Transport Minister Bhupendra Singh, artificial equipment worth Rs 1.27 crore were distributed among 2141 handicapped in a camp held at Maulthaun under Rashtriya Vayoshree and Edip Yojna. The chief guest was Union Minister of State For Social Justice and Empowerment Krishnapal Gurjar. The special guest was MP Laxminarayan Yadav. The function was presided over by Minister Bhupendra Singh.

Addressing the gathering, Minister Singh said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan are concerned for welfare of handicaps. Earlier governments were never concerned about welfare of handicaps.

Minister Singh further informed that in the camp held at Khurai, equipments worth Rs 1,28,00,000 were distributed among 180 handicaps. Hence so far, around 4000 handicaps have been given away artificial equipments. Days and nights were spent visiting each village and demarcating the handicaps in need of the aid. They were examined and then arrangements were done to bring them to the venue of the camp. Then only such large number of handicaps could be extended benefits. Khurai has become first place where handicaps have been extended benefits on large scale. This has brought changes in the lives of people. Earlier handicaps could not even walk and now they are doing all their activities through equipmenst like tricycle and others . now any handicap would be without any aid.
Union Minister Krishnapal Gurjar and MP Laxminarayan Yadav also addressed gathering.
