Manish Sisodia: Government to recommend school reopening in DDMA meeting



The Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia said that the Delhi government will be recommending the reopening of schools at the DDMA meeting to be held later today. “In the past two years, school children’s lives have been confined to their rooms. Instead of going to schools and spending time in playgrounds, all their activities now take place only on mobile phones.”

He further said, “The pandemic-induced school closures have not only affected their studies but also their mental health. During COVID, our priority was children’s safety. But since various researches have now found that COVID is not so harmful for kids, it is important to reopen the schools, as now is the time for exams and related preparations,” Sisodia said. Considering the improved situation in the state, a meeting to discuss easing restrictions has been called by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA).
