Colleges will reopen after vaccination of students, teachers and staff is completed, said the Deputy CM and Higher Education Minister C.N. Ashwath Narayan on July 12.
The Karnataka government has not taken a decision on the reopening of colleges. However, the department is making preparations for reopening, keeping in mind the fact that they may open once vaccination is complete, he said.
“The process of reopening colleges and universities is fraught with challenges. However, how long can we go on like this? Life should be back track as soon as possible. We have to take enough safety measures and aim at reopening colleges. In this regard, universal vaccination of all college students is the only way ahead,” he said. He denied allegations that the government had neglected its duty of vaccinating citizens.
