Delhi Government: Manish Sisodiya wrote a letter to the MHRD minister Ramesh Pokhriyal asking him to please cancel the CBSE exams as there is a very serious situation in Delhi in which exams of CBSE board of class 10th & 12th can not be organized as it can be a very risk in organizing the exams.
In the letter Manish Sisodiya written that the students of Delhi can be passed on the previous academic performance & brought his attention towards the 242 containment zones in Delhi in which the no of Corona patients is increasing day by day in Delhi.
Cases in Delhi of Corona are increasing rapidly & it is assumed that till 31 July there would be near about 5.3 lakh COVID cases in Delhi. Organizing the board exams in this situation in which presently the Corona patients are increasing so fast is very risky for the students. In this situation, if there is any COVID-19 patient in the locality or contact of the student there would be a lot of trouble to other students as they can also be infected from that student.
