The physically and mentally challenged 23-year-old will receive the unique identification number from District Collector Jeevan Babu K who will visit her house at Thankathaduka in Karivedakam village in Kuttikol panchayat on Thursday if the hartal doesn’t come in the way.
On March 16, Express had reported Sujitha’s plight. Paralysed waist down and with fisted hands, the deaf and mute girl was forced to make four visits to the Akshaya Centre only to be sent back each time as the machine failed to read her fingerprint.
UIDAI assistant director general and Kerala in-charge Surendra Babu had told Express the Akshaya Centre at Paduppu failed to use the provisions for physically challenged applicants.
Though she is living with multiple disabilities, the government doctors gave her a certificate citing only 70 per cent disability.
She wants to take her daughter to the specialist medical camp to identify endosulfan victims at Bovikkanam on April 8. “I hope she will get some benefits from the government.”
