Educational institutions closed for second day

KATHMANDU: The nationwide shut down of the educational institutions entered on day two affecting the study of around nine million students country-wide.

Although all schools have been declared zones of peace, UCPN-Maoist-aligned All Nepal National Independent Students’ Union-Revolutionary (ANNISU-R) shut down all private educational institutions in the country on Monday.

President of ANNISU-R Himal Sharma informed that the shutdown of the educational institutions is to protest against the strike that the education mafia has announced on Sunday. “ANNISU-R vandalized the school bus after the school obstructed the students’ move to form their organization there and also warned against their involvement in politics,” reports quoted Sharma as saying.

On Sunday the Association for Private Educational Institutions Nepal (APEIN) shut down all private educational institutions in the country on Sunday. The Sunday shut down of the schools was to protest against the arson to a bus belonging to the Battisputali-based Golden Gate International College (GGIC) by ANNISU-R cadres. The bandh has affected around two million students studying in private schools and colleges.

Reports quoted Yubraj Sharma, coordinator of the 25-member APEIN struggle committee as saying, “Our shutdown call was highly successful. The private sector has long been terrorized in the name of unionism and donation drive. The protest is for finding a permanent solution.”
