Lahore, Jan.31 (ANI): The All Pakistan Private Schools Federation has decided not to open private schools from Monday in protest against the Government’s ‘harassment’.
The public and private schools were scheduled to reopen on Monday after the Punjab government had announced their closure from January 26 to 31 due to ‘extreme cold weather’.
The Dawn reports that All Pakistan Private Schools Federation in a meeting decided that they would not reopen schools until the Shahbaz Sharif administration redressed their grievances.
The public and private schools were closed by the Punjab government on the midnight of January 25 on the pretext of cold weather.
There is all round speculation as to whether schools were genuinely closed due to adverse weather or there was a security threat that prompted closure.(ANI)
