Meanwhile, private schools in Rajasthan earlier called for an indefinite strike regarding the state government order against collecting school fees. The schools decided not to hold classes from November 5 on the call of the Forum of Private School of Rajasthan.
Many representatives of private schools of Rajasthan would be assembling in Jaipur to protest the order restricting school fees collection. As per sources, representatives of the 50, 000 private schools would assemble in Jaipur today to put forward their point of view.
Keeping the restrictions due to Covid-19, 5 representatives each of a collective of schools would be present in Jaipur to put their point in front of the government. The schools have reported financial troubles with no fees for the past seven months.
