Amidst the 21 day nationwide lockdown due to Coronavirus, District collector Om Kasera came forward to address the students taking NEET and IIT coaching in Kota and their parents.
The collector praised students for their discipline during this tough time by saying, “Dear students, you all are close to my heart and I appreciate your discipline during this tough time.”
He ensured their safety by adding –
“I want to ensure that all the students are completely safe here. Keep studying the way you were studying earlier. As soon as the lock-down is over, the examinations will begin so utilize this time productively. Study well, play some indoor sports, listen to music. We are here to support you in every possible way and will do our best to solve your problems”.
Kota Collector also appealed to the parents to provide emotional support to the students and stay in touch with them.
“.. the students staying in Kota are at a tender age, I request the parents to provide their child with emotional support and not panic. Your child is completely safe here and we ensure food and help to them in all possible ways.
Hostels where food supplies have been shut down, we have made provisions to provide food to the students. I assure you all, no student here will sleep with an empty stomach.”
The coaching institutes have also been directed to issue helpline numbers for students and make faculties and counselors available over call or WhatsApp for the students.
