LAHORE: Abolishing quota for disabled  persons in competitive examination  in Punjab has  been challenged in Lahore High Court (LHC).

A student Saira Hamid has filed a petition in LHC challenging  elimination of quota of disabled persons in PPSC examinations.

Justice Ayesha A Malik of LHC took up the case for hearing on Friday.

During the course of hearing, the counsel of petitioner took the plea that PPSC has abolished  the quota for disabled persons in CSS examinations which is tantamount to deprive them of their basic  rights.

The petitioner  prayed to court to set aside the decision of abolishing special persons quota in CSS exams.

LHC has sought reply from Punjab Public Service Commission (PPSC) in this regard.
