Dear Hon’ble Minister of HRD

Shri Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank,

As the AICTE released the Revised Academic calendar today, fear and panic only increased. Everyday, we read reports of COVID-19 cases increasing. We have witnessed how contagious and how deadly this vaccine can be. And college campuses are breeding grounds for the transmission and spread of it.

I feel scared to go back to college in August as it is still too soon. Experts expect  a second wave of Corona virus to strike soon while the first wave is far from over.

Regardless of how sanitised and dis-infected a campus can be, given the highly infectious nature of the virus - re-opening the colleges is still a risk rather than a requirement.

As most of our medical system is still under heavy strain , if any of us we;re infected in college we would not receive the adequate medical attention either.

The re-opening of Higher educational institutions on August 16th in our country will only amplify the number of cases.

We understand that colleges will have to re-open at some point. However, re-opening at this crucial stage will only undo the hard work done .

I request you to kindly allow the colleges to continue with the effective online classes and re-open them in October.

Thanking you,

Yours sincerely

Nandini
