National convention of Saksham, formerly known as Akhil Bharatiya Drishtihin Kalyan Sangh, was held in Lucknow recently. More than 600 delegates from different parts of the country participated in the three-day convention. RSS Sahsarkaryavahs Shri Bhaiyaji Johsi and Shri Madan Das guided the workers at the convention. Addressing the convention Swami Harshanand said physically-challenged persons should not be taken as a burden but efforts should be made to join them the mainstream. Shri Bhaiyaji Joshi said Saksham now would work for all physically-challenged persons instead of working only for the visually challenged. He said the physically-challenged people would be made self-reliant through various projects. National organising secretary of the Saksham Shri Avinash Sagwai and Mayor of Lucknow Shri Dinesh Sharma were also present at the convention. Shri Madan Das said the physically-challenged persons should get equal rights and respect in the society. Shri KC Pandey, one of the trustees of Shirdi Sai Sewa Trust (Nasik), said the society would be strengthened through the activities of Saksham. The convention demanded the government to declare eyes national property.
