A group of visually-challenged persons from Sakkimangalam on Monday complained that they were not given smartphones by the district administration.

After waiting under hot sun from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m we were told that they would again start distribution upon getting fresh stocks," said P. Subbuthai (42), a woman who makes a living by selling agarbathis, pens and pencils. "We believed their words that they had run out of stock, but they gave the phones to some others the very next day," she alleged.
