Press release, 7 August 2008
Lahore: The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) has again called upon the Punjab Governor and Chief Minister to ensure the implementation of the quota for disabled students’ admission to educational institutions in Punjab.
The commission has drawn attention of the governor and the chief minister to the fact that while a number of colleges and universities in the province had implemented the quota as per government policy, quite a few had not.
Calling for a consistent implementation of the quota for disabled students, HRCP demanded that the Punjab Education Department must issue a public notice outlining the extent to which the quota for special children was being implemented in educational institutions in the province.
