Welfare for disabled people

DNIS News Network -- Poryar, in Tamil Nadu, was host to the launch of a social welfare scheme.

Late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi would have been pleased with events in Poryar, Tamil Nadu in mid June. He was well known for his desire to help disabled people, so it was fitting that his bust was witness to the launch of a welcome innovation.

The town played host to Union Minister for petroleum and natural gas Mani Shankar Aiyar, who was the honoured guest at the launch of a social welfare scheme for the disabled. Funded by Indianoil, this is the first scheme of its kind in India.
