    Demonetization may be causing problem but does suicide solves it?

          Looks truly fake, The guy had a bank account. Anyone can pay fees using a cheque /DD/ Card. Why will anyone commit suicide for that?lt;br/gt;Is the greed of politicians now looking at suicide cases to get political mileage?

            I think all those who commit suicide are AAP or congress supporters. They should have waited to complete 50 days after demonetization as requested by honerable PM. Instead they commit suicide just to show that govt has failed in its demonetization move.

                Well a pointwise reply:lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;1) I was 16 when I ped 12th. So it is possible.lt;br/gt;2) Banks don't provide cheque books to student accounts. May be he did not have an ATM as well otherwise he could have got the money from ATM.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Have some doors open for logical thinking and not just bashing without knowing the facts. It may or may not be fake but "may" not "surely". lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Thanks,

                    Keeping technical data errors apart, fact is a young man committed suicide. That is there for every one to see. Yes he is not so bright to beg others to pay his fees. Apathy of bank's is criminal. They should give priority to students. They are the ones who will live longer to see the benefits of this exercise.

                      He could always pay through other payment methods. Who mandated the exam fees to be a paid as cash? Modiji is not responsible for everything we create.

                            its unfortunate he committed suicide but it was not the solution at all .he should have requested for some more time to pay his fees .don't know if they would have extended the deadline or not but keeping in mind of the current situation they would have definitely extended the deadline ..it was degree 2nd year exams ..he could have appeared next year but taking life for this reason not correct.
