Why institutes shut, but movie halls open: Fazilka students

Students protest outside a government college in Fazilka on Wednesday.



Fazilka, January 5

Students of MR Government College today took out a protest march against closing of educational institutions in the state after a surge in Covid-19 cases. They also burnt the effigy of the Punjab Government.

Activists of the Punjab Students’ Union, Fazilka, led by its president Dheeraj Kumar, sat in front of the college main gate. Kumar said career of the students would be spoiled and the online education was not a substitute for classroom teaching.

The students pleaded that some other places, including cinema halls, had been allowed to open with 50 per cent capacity and the election rallies were going on, but the education institutions had been shut.

The students said if the decision was not revoked, they would intensify their agitation. — OC
