2019 is EC’s Year of Accessible Elections but what we want is a disabled MP in Parliament

One of the big claims of the Election Commission in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls was making voting booths disability-friendly with ramps and accessibility apps. But we need to go beyond just accessible voting. People with disabilities also want a voice in India’s Parliament.
There’s now a strong consensus emerging in India’s disability community that regardless of who wins and forms the next government, President Ram Nath Kovind must make one of his 12 Rajya Sabha nominees a person with disability. It is not going to be an easy battle.
