Three prominent pressure groups in Meghalaya have opposed the idea of reopening up of educational institutions in the State asserting that such move will be counterproductive to the national and State exercises to regulate and eliminate COVID 19 pandemic.

In a letter to Chief Minister Conrad Sangma on Sunday, Khasi Student’s Union, Federation of Khasi, Jaintia and Garo People’s and Hynniewtrep National Youth Front said that educational institutions will not be in a position to abide by social distancing norms.
 “Many students of the state might have moved to their state of origin in the pre lockdown period, opening up of educational institutions at this juncture will also necessitate the interstate movement of such students who might hail from the COVID-19 red, orange or other such volatile zone,” they said.  
Furthermore, they also asked the ruling Meghalaya Democratic Alliance government to understand the psyche of the parents who are still apprehensive about sending their wards to schools
“The whole world, including India, right now must be prepared for the possible second wave of the pandemic, opening of educational institutions at this juncture is not wise in view of the global opinion on the second wave of this pandemic,” the letter stated.
