The plea further stated that most of the schools do not have CCTV cameras and the guards are not there at the main gate of the schools, due to that unwanted and antisocial elements may enter and cause a nuisance in the school which would hamper the studies of the students.

It also alleged that, in the last two-three years, the Delhi government. has renovated, and modified some classrooms in various schools in Delhi, but till the filing of the present writ petition, the said renovated modifiedclassrooms are not finished due to the lack of plaster, fittings, whitewash, etc.

It is a bitter truth that the maximum strength in the government schools is of the lower middle class and poor students. They cannot afford private tuition to be up to date for the examination. But due to the shortage of the teaching staff, the respondents are playing with the lives andprosperity, and future of the poor students, the plea stated. (ANI)
