IF YOU SPEAK TAMIL, this might interest you.
The president of Independent Living and Training Centre Francis Siva is guest on Bernama's special topic on disability tonight at 10pm. Siva, who is a tetraplegic, and uses a wheelchair will be speaking candidly on issues that affect the handicapped today in our country.
What is also interesting, however, is disabled senator, Bathamavathi Krishnan, will also be guesting on the show.
It is no secret that many physically handicapped Malaysians were most disappointed when she was appointed as senator last year. The reason is simple: Bathma has an extremely poor record in helping the handicapped community, especially the poor.
There have been public calls for her to resign and be replaced by someone better than her, and such views have been conveyed directly to Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim in official meetings and sessions.
Today, we shall get to see how the disabled senator in action in the programme which was recorded earlier. Does she truly know the issues at hand and how passionately will she be able to articulate them is what I would like to know when she faces Francis Siva, a well-respected disabled activist for many years.
So tune in everybody to find out. Happy viewing. Once again, please note that the programme will be broadcast in Tamil.
