New Delhi, December 3Days after the Indian Railways virtually rejected almost all their demands, a group of disabled people claiming to be job aspirants in the national transporter threw traffic in disarray and caused inconvenience to commuters during peak hours.
Under the rules, one per cent reservation against each of four disability categories has been provided as per the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (RPWD) Act, 2016, railway officials said.
This is the second time they have landed up in the national Capital from various states and refused to go back unless their demands are met.
On October 23, around 200 differently-abled people staged a protest at Mandi House, demanding a meeting with railway officials.
Out of the 184 representations sent to the railways, around 21 candidates in the list had not even secured the relaxed minimum/ threshold pass score of 38 for UR and 28 for SC/ST/ OBC.
