‘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.

Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu appealed to people in India and the 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.
