Amarinder had on December 1 written to Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman seeking reversal of the ministry's decision to cap educational expenses paid to children of personnel killed or disabled in the line of duty.

The Centre has urged all states to ensure that every child with disability must get free education till he or she turns 18. Referring to the provisions of the Rights of Persons with Disability (RPwD) Act, the Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry has also asked the heads of the state education departments to ensure that all schools within their jurisdiction have inclusive classrooms and teaching-learning atmosphere to enable special children to study along with others. For this, the ministry has asked the states to make "suitable modifications" in the curriculum and examination system to meet the needs of students with disabilities such as giving extra time for completion of the examination paper, facility of scribe or amanuensis, and exemption from second and third language courses. This comes as complaints against many of the schools denying admission to special children and discriminating against those admitted continue to pour in from different parts of the country despite clear provisions in the ...
