    Did u read his whole interview in which he told "students will be present" which means private schools can take advantage of thisome nd can call students to forcefully come to school . Dear parents please don't listen to these idiots as karnataka has second most active cases and please don't send your childrenew of school . As this is a BJP ruled state they are opening schools but most states have refused to open on 21 . Stay safe stay home .

    We do understand that some students are facing issues with online classes. But we need to understand that we are in middle of a pandemic. We dont want online classes once Pandemic is over. India is reporting close to 1 lakh cases everyday and more than 1000 deaths due to COVID. The priority is to save lives first. If precious lives are lost or put in danger who will be responsible ?

    It is impossible to maintain social distancing once schools and colleges reopen. The buses will be overcrowded. Students wont follow instructions like wearing masks. Toilets facilities and cleanliness in colleges and schools are less than adequate. Its just not worth the risk to send children to schools and colleges unless there is proper medication or vaccine. Our requests as parents is to please continue with online mode of education as much as possible and save precious lives of citizens.
