The Capital city will now be focusing on making the parks more accessible for the specially-abled people. The city has spent more money on the making of roads than parks over the last decade and now it would be focusing on the latter.
As per the shared details, this was discussed during a high-level meeting on Wednesday chaired by President Dr. Arif Alvi on the welfare of specially-abled people. The meeting was attended by the secretary of the housing ministry and the chairman of the Capital Development Authority (CDA).
During the meeting, Dr. Alvi emphasized the need for making the specially-abled people active members of society. A key step in this regard, he observed, was to make the existing structures of the city further inclusive for the specially-abled.
A comprehensive briefing was also given to the president over the steps taken for the welfare of specially-abled people.
Dr. Alvi noted that for the movement of the specially-abled in the federal capital, further improvement was needed.
In this regard, CDA Chairman and Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Administration Chief Commissioner Aamer Ali Ahmed said that specific places will be allocated for the specially-abled in the 235 parks across Islamabad.
