He stated that academics are also conducting meetings online, so why are children’s health being jeopardized by taking offline exams?

I would want to propose that you (the government) cancel the offline examinations. If not, my pupils and I will stage a demonstration at the Varsha Gaikwad’s doorway. I am not going to quit till they receive justice, Bhau stated in the clip.
