Chief Medical Officer (CMO) on Wednesday issued a disability certificate to the man who was carried by his wife on her back to the CMO office.
Earlier, it was reported that a woman was seen carrying her differently-abled husband on her shoulders to obtain a disability certificate from the office.
Vimala’s husband was a truck driver, who, due to some medical problems, had to get his leg amputated a few months ago. When she went to the CMO office to get her husband’s disability certificate made, Vimala was asked to get his photograph clicked.
Because of the lack of a tricycle, she was forced to carry her husband on her back.
“We have no access to a wheel-chair or a tricycle. We went to many different offices but still have not got the certificate,” Vimala told the media.
Talking about the incident, UP Minister Bhupendra Chaudhary told media, “It is a sad incident to happen in a civilised world. We will inspect the case and help accordingly.”(Minimal edits applied, story generated from syndicated ANI feed)
