Lieutenant Governor, Shri Manoj Sinha and Union Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment Dr. Virendra Kumar inaugurated J&K's first festival of Inclusion, Purple Fest, which aims to showcase a kaleidoscope of abilities hidden inside disabilities and celebrating resilience of Divyangjan. 

The Purple Festival is also a call for action to the people and exhort the society to take proactive steps in creating a more inclusive environment. Hon’ble Union Minister had joined the function virtually. Sh Jugal Kishore Sharma, Hon’ble Member of Parliament was also present.

On the occasion, the Lt Governor observed that in many areas of life, be it music, films, sports, art, or literature, persons with disabilities have achieved success and greater goals and today they are inspiring the entire society. He said many such great personalities have proved that they have no less capability than anyone else but they have special abilities to contribute in nation building.

Around 5000 people are participating in this unique event which is of, by, and for Divyangjan. A fully accessible event, it is an effort to showcase the minds full of courage, strength and determination of persons with special abilities.

This Festival of Inclusion will be a milestone in the journey of empowerment of Divyangjan in J&K UT. It will inspire every citizen to work unitedly for empowerment and rehabilitation of Divyangjan and to build an inclusive society, he added.

We will prepare a legal framework to ensure employment opportunities to divyangjan in private sector, he said.
