Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) called on the Union and state governments to resume offline study in schools, colleges and universities due to declining level of education while teaching in line, its national secretary general Nidhi Tripathi said on Monday.
She said the ABVP, which is part of the Sangh Parivar like the ruling BJP, will submit a memorandum to the Union Education and Home Ministries, Chief Ministers, etc. about this question. âThe management of many educational institutions, schools and colleges collects the full cost, including tuition. Students also pay fees for the library and other administrative officials, but do not have the option of using campus facilities as studies are online, âshe said.
