Maharashtra: Thalassemia patients now in state disability list

After a wait of two long years, the Maharashtra government has finally passed a general resolution (GR) bringing blood deficient patients under disability category. As such patients of thalassemia, hemophilia and sickle cells disease who are included in this category will now be able to get reservations for jobs and education. The patients association, however, say that rather than wasting time by rejoicing, they should fight for what has been promised to them.
