NASREEN WADIA started this petition to Government and NGOs collectively should come together to ensure implementation of the Schemes

I am suffering from physical disability since age of four when I was given a penicillin injection to bring down very high fever that resulted in paralyses affecting both my lower limbs. Apart from that my general health is as good as anyone else. I have approached most of the medical insurance companies and they have blatantly refused health cover on the ground of my disability. This is discrimination. If we are given the rights to vote and elect a government then why not the right of equality and inclusion. We are earning and paying income tax and are still deprived of the basic facilities like medical insurance ? In which case we should boycott voting and stop paying income tax. We have nothing against anybody, all we are asking for is the freedom to exercise our rights to equality. 

This link has an article which clearly highlights the system and Government policy failure in this regards. Kindly read the same to understand this petition in the right perspective
