Eluru: Minister for woman and child welfare T Vanita called upon the differently-abled persons to move ahead with self-confidence as the government is ready to extend its total support for their welfare. She distributed artificial limbs to 138 differently-abled persons at a cost of Rs 7.4 lakh at a programme organised to mark the birth anniversary celebrations of famous blind author Helen Keller here on Thursday. Speaking on the occasion, Vanita urged people to encourage the differently-abled persons to excel in their field of interest. They should be helped to come up in life with their innate talent. The minister appealed to the physically-challenged to compete with others and never give up hope.
