Bhubaneswar, July 2 (LocalWire): Odisha Abhibhavak Mahasangh, a parents’ outfit from the state has now moved to the Odisha Human Rights Commission (OHRC) seeking access to classes for students from the state.
The outfit claims that close to 38 lakh students out of 60 lakh students studying in government schools are not able to access online classes due to lack of access to internet and mobile and other logistic issues.
The outfit claimed that the deprivation of these students to education is a violation of the Right to Education (RTE).
It has now sought the intervention of the OHRC to ensure access to classes for these deprived students.
The forum also claimed that in many states like West Bengal, Assam and Kerala students have committed suicide due to lack of access to education and warned that such incidents can be reported from the state if authorities do not plan a way to reach out to them.
