According to reports, chief minister Mamata Banerjee said on Wednesday that a decision on reopening of schools will only be taken after Kali Puja on November 14.

“Any decision on reopening of schools will be taken after Kali puja,” PTI quoted Banerjee as saying on Wednesday.

She made the remarks in an administrative review meeting in Siliguri.

“As the festival season is approaching and assembly in public spaces is feared, no one knows whether the situation will turn for the worse. Therefore, the government is not saying anything on when the schools will reopen,” The Telegraph quoted a education department official as saying.

Schools have been shut in the state since March 16 because of the outbreak of Covid-19.

Two weeks ago, education minister Partha Chatterjee had said that the Bengal government was in no position to decide on the reopening of educational institutions because Covid-19 was still a threat.

“The schools and colleges will reopen only when the situation becomes normal. As of now, the institutions are closed till September 30. How can you even ask when schools will reopen? Covid cases are still increasing rapidly…. I have no idea how you can open schools now,” Chatterjee had said.

Meanwhile, last week it was announced that the new academic session of both undergraduate and post graduate levels in colleges and universities will begin from December 1.
