D.N.I.S. News Network, India: There is lack of political will in understanding the seriousness of disability issues which has led to inadequate allocation of resources for disabled people in the country, Disabled Rights Group (D.R.G.) Convenor Javed Abidi said.

Narrating his experience on visiting Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad on January 29, Abidi said that there were no ramps for disabled visitors but only steps all over the complex.

Shocked and dismayed, Abidi tweeted, “In Gujarat, the land of Gandhi, at Sabarmati Ashram, the home of Bapu, there are no ramps. So, I can’t go in!”.
