'World Disability Day' should be renamed 'Day of Persons With Special Ability' as such people have proved that nothing could stop them from achieving their goals, Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu said on Tuesday.
He made the remark at a programme here on International Day of Persons with Disabilities to confer national awards for outstanding achievements and work done towards the empowerment of Persons with Disabilities.
Naidu appealed to people in India and world over to consider his suggestion as specially abled people have proved they were role model for others.
He wished that specially abled people get hassle-free access to cinema halls, auditoriums, public places and other areas and urged the corporate and private sectors to play a role in this regard.
