Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday directed all the ministries to carry out special arrangements to facilitate handicapped and old aged citizens.
According to reports, the Ministry of Communications has immediately sent a letter to National Highway Authority (NHA) officials, transport companies and IG motorways.
Pertaining authorities are told to provide special ease to the handicapped and aged passengers at rest houses throughout all highways and motorways across Pakistan.
Construction of ramps along with the availability of wheelchairs has been declared “a must” in all washrooms and resting areas.
Special seats will also be reserved for them in transport vehicles.
Earlier in the month of April, the Punjab government announced the issuance of ‘Sehat Insaf Cards’ to specially-abled people across the province for the endowment of medical facilities to their families.
