Panaji : Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Paksha (MGP) Minister Sudin Dhavlikar has raised concerns over connectivity issues faced by students in Goa. “Government does not want students coming from poor background and rural areas to do well in school” charged Dhawlikar.
“Government issues circular to hold online classes but, do all the students have good connectivity in villages ? more over do they have a smartphone to access these classes” asked Dhavlikar.
Dhavlikar alleged that during last year’s Legislative Assembly session CM had assured him that until the state has built enough infrastructure to facilitate online learning he would not start online virtual education.
MGP has given a memorandum to CM Dr Pramod Sawant, Chief Secretary , Secretary of education, Director of education as well as district collectors, raising concern about online education and its inaccessibility.
Dhavlikar has asserted that in the coming assembly session he will bring calling attention to this issue. He has requested parents to take part in his protest which will commence three days before the assembly sessions at Azad Maidan, Panaji.
