The Samagi Jana Balawegaya charges that provisions and funds granted by the government to disinfect schools is insufficient.

Speaking at a media briefing in Colombo today, Parliamentarian Rohini Kaviratne said a pressing concern has arisen over safety of reopening schools.

She questioned if the government that claimed it had ensured national security has ensured the people’s health security as well, in order to reopen schools.

She further highlighted that the number of students needed to attend school and effectively conduct classes is also insufficient at present as school attendance remains low.

The MP therefore questioned if a safe environment has been ensured to safely reopen schools.
