Differently-abled students (mentally handicapped) would get free education at the Punjabi University campus up to PhD level. Jaspal Singh, vice-chancellor Punjabi University, Patiala announced this on Sunday at Surge-2012, a programme for the special children, held on the Thapar University campus.
The programme was organised by Rainbow Club as part of its fourth raising day celebrations.
A large number of differently-abled children participated in the celebrations and took part in singing and dancing contests. During the programme it was stressed that these children need special attention and care.
The highlight of the function was a performance by Harsimran Singh Shah, a mentally-challenged bhangra dancer. The upcoming singers from Patiala, Swarleen and Arashpreet Singh, enthralled the audience with their Sufi songs.
Nancy Ghuman, president of Rainbow club, urged the audience to support the cause.
