Hyderabad: Most of the schools in Telangana remained shut on Tuesday due to the statewide bandh called by the Akhil Bharatiya Vidya Parishad (ABVP).
The organisation is not happy with irregular fees in private schools. The Telangana government has failed in this regard and has not been able to provide basic facilities in government schools in the state. Therefore, the ABVP called for a bandh to attract the attention of the state government to check private school fees and improve the condition of government schools.
More than three weeks have passed since the opening of schools, but government schools are running without textbooks in the hands of students, a lack of uniforms, and basic things like chalk and dusters are not available in government schools. How can students continue their studies in this absurd situation?
Meanwhile, the fees of private schools are touching the sky. So the protest has taken place to provide basic facilities and make an overall improvement in government-run schools so the downtrodden of society can be educated.
According to ABVP, the bandh has been enforced in the majority of the schools across the 14 ‘vibhags’ of the organisation in the GHMC limits.
Many schools, especially government schools, are operating today despite the bandh. The ABVP has stated that the bandh will be enforced in all schools across all boards.
