I will not send my children to school at this time, says Hassan MLA Preetham Gowda
Even as the BJP government in the state is mulling reopening of schools and colleges after October 15, its own party MLA from Hassan has categorically given a thumbs-down to the reopening proposal.
Speaking to the media here, Preetham Gowda said, “I as a father will not send my children to school in this situation. I have two children and am saying this as a parent. If the government takes any decision on reopening of schools, I shall convey my stand on the matter.”
To make his stand even clearer, he said, “As a parent, I will not send my two children to school. As a legislator, I will listen to the government. But I also have a family. First comes family, then comes politics. If there is life, there will be livelihood.”
