Tarai schools shut again

JANAKPURDHAM: The Socialist Students Union has enforced educational strike in the Tarai region citing that the education institutions neglected genuine problems of the students.

The union Chair Gyanendra Jha informed that they called the schools closure as the schools were run during the tense time of protests currently ongoing in the region.

He further added that the schools were compelling the students to pay the fee during the period of school closure.

On the other hand, National Private and Boarding School Association (NPABOSN) chair Dev Nath Pandey informed that they were running the schools as per the decision of United Democratic Madhesi Front.

Schools in the district were closed for several months owing to protest programmes of the UDMF. The UDMF in November, however, had agreed to let the schools open after pressures from several walks of life.
