Seek response from Delhi government on petition for school buses
The High Court has sought a response from the Delhi government on a plea seeking the provision of around 360 buses to enable students studying in several government schools in North Eastern districts to study in schools in other districts. The NGO Social Jurist has alleged that some government schools in the North Eastern district are not offering full-time classes because they work only two hours a day on alternate days.
A bench of Acting Chief Justice Manmohan and Justice Mini Pushkarna said that the petitioner is only seeking 367 buses to send children to other schools, while a school building is being constructed in their own district. Children should go to school.
