Deaf and Dumb Association warns of protest if 5% job quota not implemented

The Deaf and Dumb Association on Tuesday announced to organise a massive demonstration on October 8 in Karachi against non-implementation of five percent job quota for disabled persons.

They told the media that the Sindh Government has constantly ignored them through fake promises and failed to implement five percent job quota for special persons. They said that their families had been suffering economically. They appealed to the Prime Minister Imran Khan to take notice of their grievances, and order implementation of job quota on the priority basis or otherwise, they would hold a massive demonstration in Karachi.
