"The coronavirus cases witnessed a rise in the country. The situations in the neighboring states are alarming. Several students are tested positive in various schools of Telangana after which the government took the call. Due to the mass congregation of students, there is a possibility of the spread of coronavirus in the state. We also received several requests from the parents about the closure of the schools and colleges. Considering all these, we took the decision" told Sabitha Indra Reddy. A crucial meeting was held with Chief Minister KCR after which the final call was taken.
