    CM opens District Handicap Sports Meet

    CM opens District Handicap Sports Meet (3)Nagpur: “Physical handicap should not become an impediment in one’s quest for achieving greater heights. In fact, the physically challenged should accept the reality and strive hard to cross newer milestones and create records on the strength of their self-confidence,” said Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis after inaugurating Nagpur District Handicap Sports Competition here on Monday.

    The Sports Competition is being held at the grounds of Ishwar Deshmukh Physical Education College. Other dignitaries present on the occasion include Guardian Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule, Social Justice Minister Rajkumar Badole, Zilla Parishad President Nishatai Savarkar, Mayor Pravin Datke, MLAs Dr Milind Mane, Sudhakar Kohale and others.

    “Human organs could go dysfunctional due to natural or artificial reasons. In this situation, a person gets depressed. But he or she should get jolted. Instead the physically challenged should fight to defeat the adverse situation with their inner strength and self-confidence,” appealed Fadnavis and added that his Government is implementing several schemes to bring the handicapped persons into mainstream. “In the coming days, all needful will be done for education of physically challenged persons.

Arnuma Sinha, a young girl, lost her both legs in a railway accident but climbed the Himalayas with aplomb. The handicap did not become hurdle for her in her quest to be atop the mountain. You should also achieve success with the same zeal,” exhorted the Chief Minister to participating physically challenged persons at the sports meet.
