BJP and  Congress have alleged that  Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is hiding the actual data related to the corona pandemic from the public. Delhi Congress Committee Chief Chaudhary Anil Kumar said the real figures are much higher than what the Government has revealed. Kumar said that the data released by the Central Government hospitals and the Delhi Government bulletins also differ. As corona has changed the way of life, the academicians also pitched a few updates in their study patterns in schools. BJP President Manoj Tiwari has expressed concern over reports of “underreporting” of deaths due to Covid-19 in Delhi and asked Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to clear the air about it. In a joint Facebook Live session with Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Ranvir Singh Bidhuri, Tiwari said on Saturday, May  09 that newspapers pegged deaths due to coronavirus in Delhi to more than 100 while the Delhi government has claimed only 66 deaths so far. Meanwhile, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has initiated dialogue with the stakeholders on school education in post lockdown. Sisodia invited students, parents, teachers, and Principals to hear their suggestions. “We have faced challenges in the past, the difference this time is that the entire world is facing it together. Soon, we will learn to live with corona. Slowly, things will open up and so will the schools. However, this also means that new ideas of schools and learning will have to be scripted,” said Sisodia. “For decades, schools had a set pattern, standardized classes, times, way of functioning, these need to be reimagined now”, he added. As per Directorate of Education (DoE) officials, as a first step to initiate this dialogue, an online suggestion form has been put on the website of the Directorate of Education, Govt.of Delhi (picture courtesy: Zee News)
