“If the national level competition is to be organized by the School Federation of India in the months of October and November, they have plenty of time for this. If the Education Department can think about the children in this heat, then the Sports Department should also take cognizance of this. Sports competitions should be postponed for a few days,” said Rahul Sambyal.
