According to the information given by the Meteorological Department (IMD), there has been heavy rain in many cities throughout the night. Water has accumulated in many parts of the state. “It is dangerous to continue school under such conditions. The lives of the children who went to schools are in danger and if any accident happens then who will be responsible for such situation. Strict legal action should be taken against such irresponsible schools, said one of the parents.
“We have not been given any information by the school. Children went to school as usual. They don’t even respond to the WhatsApp messages, when we ask. The teachers and administration of the school are doing arbitrary things. Strict action must be taken against the school administration by the education department”, said another parent.
Tried to get the reaction of the school administrations in this regard but they did not respond.
