New Delhi: Nationalist Congress Party member, Vandana Chavan, on Wednesday expressed concern over reports of suicide by students from underprivileged sections over the inability of their families to buy smartphones.

Pointing to the 240 million student population, she said, “We cannot fail the young.”
