Lucknow University teachers ask varsity to continue online classes after Holi break
Several other teachers have also feared that there can be an outbreak on the campus if students are allowed to return to hostels and classes
The Lucknow University Teachers Association (LUTA) has asked the university administration and state government to allow only online classes when the campus reopens after Holi vacation on April 1.
LUTA general secretary Rajendra Kumar Verma, in a letter to the administration, said, "There has been a sharp increase in COVID-19 cases in the past few days. There are also reports of several university teachers getting infected. Hence, our request is to continue the online mode even after March 31."
Several other teachers have also feared that there can be an outbreak on the campus if students are allowed to return to hostels and classes.
"It will be risky for students, teachers and non-teaching staff," said a senior faculty member.
After closure of eight months since last March, LU had reopened in November.
