Dipak Chakravarty, MD of NRL, on his inaugural speech said, that the mentally and physically disabled people are an integral part of our society and we should never neglect and treat them as inferior. It is the moral responsibility of the society to create such an ambient that where the disabled persons can also partake at social, political and cultural field.

While Speaking to Assamtimes, Pranab Kr.
