Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Monday said that the AAP government has received mixed opinions on the reopening of schools in the city. He, however, said that largely people favoured the resumption of schools.
"We are reviewing the suggestions from public, some demanded reopening, some did not. A decision to be taken soon on the basis of all factors (vaccines for children) and feedback. Largely, it seems that many people want it (reopening)," Sisodia, who is also the education minister, told reporters.
Late July, Sisodia had sought opinions and suggestions from students, teachers and parents regarding reopening of schools. In an online briefing, Sisodia said that any parent, teacher, and student can send their suggestions via e-mail to email@example.com.
