The Private School Association has decided to close all private educational institutes in Rawalpindi and Islamabad for the next two days.
The decision was made to avoid any untoward situation due to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (TI) planned a long march on 25 May.
“Due to the PTI’s protest, all private schools will remain closed on 25, and 26 May,” the association said in a statement, adding that the future course of action will be announced after reviewing the situation.
The association has said that all exams scheduled on these days will be rescheduled for later dates, and has asked schools to inform parents of the decision.
Meanwhile, PTI Chairman Imran Khan, on Tuesday, reiterated that the long march against the ‘imported government’ will take place at all costs. He also called on the nation to ‘break the shackles of fear’ and come out in numbers on 25 May.
Are public schools also closing?
And if they are, are they closing in Lahore as well?
