The Telangana government on Tuesday decided to start classes for sixth to eighth standard students from Wednesday.

As per the directives of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar held a teleconference with all district Collectors, District Education Officers (DEOs) and other officials.
