Governor Shiv Pratap Shukla honoured specially abled young achievers from different parts of the state at Raj Bhawan today evening. The achievers included Nikita Chaudhary, the first girl in the state to pursue an MBBS degree while in a wheelchair.

Three assistant professors, Muskan Negi and Pratibha Thakur, who are visually impaired, and Anjana Thakur, who is an amputee, were also honoured at the event, which was organised by the Umang Foundation.

Taking about the young achievers, the Governor said these girls had proved that one could overcome any disability with dedication and hard work.
