Kathmandu, April 16

Nine student unions affiliated to various political parties have warned of launching a stern protest demanding that private schools which have hiked their fee for the new academic session withdraw the decision.

The unions say they will submit a memorandum to Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Tuesday demanding an effective implementation of the School Fee Determination Directive. They unions have planned to serve a 72-hour ultimatum. If their demand is not met by then, they will announce other protest programmes.

Meanwhile, the unions have demanded that the government implement past agreements signed between the government and student unions.

The student leaders, however, say they will not affect teaching learning activities.

 

The unions had held a joint meeting at the Nepal Students Union office today to decide the protest programmes.
