ISLAMABAD (APP) - The Ministry of Youth Affairs (MoYA) often does not erect necessary facilities to ensure that Youth with disabilities can move throughout the city in a safe and convenient manner. Without the required facilities, most of the areas are dangerous and in some cases it is impossible for youth to move who use wheelchairs, scooters, and other mobility aids, a social worker Yaqub Khan said. He said when streets and roads are newly built or altered, they must have ramps wherever there are curbs or other barriers to entry from a pedestrian walkway. He said that while resurfacing a street or sidewalk is considered an alteration for these purposes, filling in potholes alone will not trigger the alterations requirements. He said that at existing roads and sidewalks that have not been altered, however, the ministry and civic body of the city may choose to construct curb ramps at every point where a pedestrian walkway intersects a curb, but they are not necessarily required to do so. Secretary Ministry Of Youth Affirs while talking to this news agency informed that special and handicapped youth may be given the same quota in all youth activities as has been approved by the Government in respect of Special Education and Rehabilitation of disabled persons. Chair accesses and special toilets for the disable youth be made compulsory in construction of all future buildings, he said.
