Hyderabad: Incessant rain has forced the Telangana government to shut all educational institutions—private and government-aided—for three days till Saturday. If weather permits, it is expected that schools will open on Monday.

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao took this decision after a high-level meeting with ministers and officials reviewing the situation in the state.

Earlier today, the Chief Secretary, through a video conference, met with all the district collectors and got details of the situation regarding heavy rain.

Officials have been asked to keep an eye on the situation and remain on high alert. Meanwhile, people living in low-lying areas may be shifted to special camps, if necessary. Waterlogging in the lower areas of several districts has created havoc because essential goods are not being supplied in such places.
