SWAT: Disabled persons staged a protest demonstration in Swat on Friday in favour of their demands.

The disabled people gathered in front of Swat Press Club and chanted slogans. They were also carrying banners and placards inscribed with demands-oriented slogans.

The protesting disabled persons demanded the government to ensure implementation of special persons’ quotas in jobs in all the government departments and provision of treatment facilities at the government expense. They vowed that they would continue their protests till acceptance of their all demands.

After staging their protest, the disabled people dispersed peacefully, hoping that their demands will be accepted.
