Fatehgarh Sahib. March 31
Members of the National Affiliated Schools’ Association (NASA) today protested in front of the DC office against the decision of the state government to close schools in the state.
They raised slogans such as “Dekho Punjab sarkar da dastoor khule theke band school”. They submitted a memorandum to the DC in this regard.
Addressing the gathering, Nirmal Singh Reona, state president of the NASA, said it was unfortunate that the state government had ordered to close the schools on the pretext of spike in Covid cases.
He asked the government whether Covid was just prevalent in schools and not at malls, restaurants, wine shops, pubs, political rallies, kissan rallies and other social and religious gatherings.
He said if parents were affected with Covid, how the children could stay safe? He said 1.5 lakh buses, its drivers, conductors, five lakh teachers, clerical staff, owners and other education-related businesses would be affected. He urged the government not to destroy all these sections and to do away the orders to close the schools down.
He assured the government that they would follow all Covid protocols and take precautions such as vaccination of the school staff, clerical staff, drivers, management and others. He warned that if the government did not concede their demand, they would be forced to launch an indefinite agitation.
