DNIS News Network -- Disability Rights Group Convener and activist Javed Abidi has announced his intention to conduct an indefinite fast in an attempt to force the Election Commission to issue a new statement on polling station accessibility.

He is incensed at the lack of action by the Election Commission over the groups repeated demands to ensure the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections are made accessible to all voters, and sees no other way open to force action by the authorities.

The fast is set to begin on April 14.
