KARIMNAGAR: In order to demand the educational institutions to conduct physical classes for the benefit of the student community, the Students Federation of India (SFI) Karimnagar district unit has conducted a mock classroom at its office in Mukunda bhavan in Karimnagar town on Thursday.
The SFI had depicted in the mock classroom how to conduct classes physically by maintaining social distancing and use of facemask and sanitisers before entering the school and classroom. They also demanded the government to provide vaccines to all the students before the conduct of physical classes.
On this occasion, SFI district secretary Shanigarapu Rajanikanth said that the student community was at the receiving end for the last two years with the outbreak of a deadly virus and distanced from regular education. Though the authorities were conducting the online classes, they were distant dreams to the poorer sections due to the non-availability of mobile phones and television sets and the non-availability of internet connections, he stated.
Launching a scathing attack against the Union and the state governments for neglecting the education sector on the pretext of the virus, he said that the students were undergoing mental agony due to the closure of educational institutions. He charged that the students were being addicted to digital games by using the mobile phones in the name of digital classes and losing their discipline.
He also demanded that the government should allocate separate fund for the purchase of facemasks and sanitisers for all educational institutions. SFI vice president G Srikanth, assistant secretary K Aravind, district leaders T Rohith, Ratnam, Suresh, Manoj, Manasa, Hema, Kavya, Mounika and others were also present.
