Beside this, different cultural activist, civil society representatives, media representatives, government officers join the human chain and express their willingness to support disability movement unconditionally.

The demands of this Human chain are as follows:

“We would like to know from the Government of Peoples Republic Of Bangladesh”
1 Where we (PWDs) are in decision making process?
2 Do we get opportunity of education?
3 What is the barrier of our employment in Bangladesh Cadre Service (BCS)?
4 Why we are absent in political discussion?
5 Why the roads and public transports are not appropriate for all of us?
6 Will the professionals be responsible for us?

So, the demand of PWDs is: “Appropriate and anti-discriminatory state for all of us”.

Thanking you all
