New Delhi, August 13: A student studying in class XII has filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking a direction to take a time-bound decision to open all schools and start offline studies.

It has been said in the petition that the policies of the Central and state governments are being lax regarding the introduction of physical education in schools.

Advocate Ravi Prakash Mehrotra, appearing for the petitioner, said that due to online studies instead of physical studies, students are being affected psychologically in a psychological way. It has been said in the petition that it is not possible to do online classes for economically weaker children. In such a situation, they are resorting to private tuition or coaching.

It has been said in the petition that the student community in India is being deprived of their studies without offline studies in schools. This deprives them of their right to get education. This is a violation of Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution.
