If this has to change then there should be members in Panchayath who are compassionate towards the physically challenged. For this reason there should be reservation for the physically challenged and they should be elected, he said.
Running a travel agency Gomes is married and has two daughters. Hundreds of the physically handicapped have already expressed their support to him. They have also said that they will come to support him in the election campaign in coming week.
Gomes says that he feels confident of winning from this kind of support. If he wins, he wants to fight for the various facilities for the physically challenged such as house plots, pension, health insurance etc. He says, he may not be able to achieve anything much alone. But inspired from him many more take up the election challenge
