At least 50 disabled employees of the MBMC‘s 1,500-strong staff will have to travel to Airoli and Belapur for election duty, primarily as polling and counting staff. Some of those assigned poll duty are wheelchair-bound. As far as possible, disabled government staff are to be exempted from poll duty. Even if given poll-related work, they should be assigned areas where they go to work.
Now, disabled and emergency staff have appealed to be taken off poll duty.
