For the disabled, the booths weren’t friendly

Some people with disabilities experienced difficulties while casting their votes at the R.K. Nagar bypoll on Thursday, while a few did not know about arrangements made for them. Disability rights activists say that while some booths were accessible, more needs to be done at others.
When S. Mohan Raj, a voter with poor vision, went to the booth, the candidates’ list was not available in Tamil Braille.
