DELHI METRO MUSEUM OBSERVES INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PERSONS WITH DISABLITIES WITH A HOST OF EVENTS
The Delhi Metro Museum today marked the ‘International Day of Persons with Disabilities’ with a host of activities and special visits.
Orthopedically challenged children visited the Metro Museum at Patel Chowk and participated in a ‘sit and draw’ competition on the theme – ‘Delhi Metro – the lifeline of Delhi’. The children were also provided with a joy ride in the Metro from Dwarka to Patel Chowk.
Attractive prizes were given away to all the winners. A special puppet show was organised for the children. The event was organised in association with an NGO – Prerna Niketan Sangh, which runs a residential facility for orthopedically challenged children in Najafgarh.
The Delhi Metro provides barrier free access to all its physically challenged passengers. All stations are equipped with tactile paths, lifts, escalators and wheelchairs for the convenience of the physically challenged passengers. Seats are also reserved for them in the Metro trains and special space is available for the placing of wheelchairs inside trains.AD/ED(CC)/DMRC
