President Bidya Devi Bhandari has expressed best wishes to all people living with disabilities, national and international organizations working in this sector, the Nepal government, and guardians' associations on the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disability (IDPD).

Giving a message of best wishes today, Bhandari said the IDPD would inspire all sectors concerned to work together for the rights of IDPD. The Day, began to be celebrated at the initiative of the UN three decades back for the protection and promotion of the IDPD's rights, encouraging all for mainstreaming people with disabilities in national development by ensuring inclusive and participatory development and accessible physical infrastructures, President Bhandari stated in the message.

She also reminded me that the Constitution of Nepal has ensured the rights of people living with disabilities. They can live a dignified and self-esteemed life, she added. The state and all three layers of the government should make further efforts to identify and take onboard the people living with disabilities and ensure their education, health, and employment in the country.
