The minister also expressed his happiness at private schools using Happiness Curriculum in their schools.
During the lockdown period, the happiness classes were disrupted initially and then resumed later to be conducted at home. The Deputy CM had said that happiness classes have a crucial role to play during these turbulent times.
"We are all gripped with anxiety today. These are unusual times and we do not know what to do as a fun activity. We cannot go out, go to movies, or sit in parks, we are confined to our homes with our family," the minister said.
The Delhi Government had, earlier, also asked private schools not to charge 3 months' fee at a time during the lockdown period and had asked schools to let children attend online classes even if they were not able to pay the tuition fee.
