It was a blessing in disguise for APM to leave stage, people wouldn’t have listened to him on the justification not to open schools by 13 July.

The Commission set that date of 13th in good time but the Ministry was sleeping on its duty without making all the precaution measures. If the reason is that the Covid-19 figures are increasing, do you think the figures will go down sooner. Suppose the figures keep on rising until 2022 will the schools remain closed. Just put up measures so that learners, teachers, staff members are all protected from this pandemic.
