Disabled seek govt support for treatment

PARACHINAR: A large number of children have become disabled due to non-availability of polio vaccine here and many members of tribal Lashkars have been mutilated due to clashes with extremists. Talking to newsmen here on Thursday, tribal elders Malik Muhammad Ali Shah, Malik Syed Azmat Ali and Councellor Hussain Ghulam said scores of people had lost their body parts in the Afghan war, landmines and fight with the extremists. They asked the government to take measures for the disabled people in order to make them a useful part of the society and help them earn their livelihood. They said majority of these people belonged to the poor families, who could not afford the expenses of treatment and needed the support of the government.
