Astana. April 21. KazTAG - Officials should reseat into the wheelchair, travel around the city in order to understand the problems of disabled people, said Dariga Nazarbayeva, Vice Speaker of Majilis.

"In order to feel yourself in this role you might travel around the city, go to the theatre, shops, cinema, medical institutions ... At the end of the day you will realize whether it is good or bad, comfortable or uncomfortable. I think this idea is very sensible, isn't it? Let's make this proposal to the executive bodies. Maybe in this case something will change," she said addressing to her colleagues.

Tamara Duisenova, Minister of Labor and Social Protection, said in her comments on the sidelines of Majilis "she is one of those people, not as a Minister, as a citizen who understands the problems of disabled people".
