    It is a blunder approach. Manu school do not have very big class room to accommodate 30 student keeping distance of six ft. Open ground? Wah it u rainy season. How it is possible to take class. In rain where can to accommodate student.

    Infection, spread cooks btw detected in two weeks it,so. So giving entry to lower after a week if higher class is certainly risky.
    Mist of the couple has,single issue. In case some thing went wrong and he/ she suffer from Covid 19, will. NCERT, or school accept the life rush, responsibility.

    Sine thing need to be told, that is told, but noe acceptable, and major risk involved
