Hundreds of students protested outside Maharashtra State School Education Minster Prof. Varsha Eknath Gaikwad’s house, against offline exams. The students demand online exams for classes 10th and 12th, in view of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We’ve been continuously discussing students’ health and safety. I told students to have discussions with me; I’ll decide further. But we also have to keep in mind the two-year loss in school students’ education,” Gaikwad said.
The students, who had assembled from areas like Thane and Nashik besides the metropolis on the basis of information shared on social media, did not have permission for the protest, the police official added.
