Demand 50% relief and continue their protest on Gandhi Jayanti
Annoyed by the state government’s announcement of 25 per cent relief in school fees, the Vadodara Parents Association today demanded 50 per cent relief in fees by garlanding the statue of Mahatma Gandhi at Gandhinagar Gruh on Gandhi Jayanti.
A large number of members of Vadodara Parents Association were present there and sung Ramdhun to oppose the 25 per cent relief in fees given by the government.
Leaders of the Vadodara Parents’ Association said that no country in the world has been left out of the global corona pandemic, and to a lesser extent every family within India has been affected by it. People’s businesses have hit so as the employment. The income of the guardians has decreased and the concern of every parent to pay their child’s fees, the problem of support the family has also taken a huge turn.
At this time, the parents of Gujarat were waiting for the state government to reduce the children’s fees by 50 per cent this year. But they spoil their expectations. During the lockdown period, when school-colleges are not open and school administrators have not incurred any expenses, the government has given an open door to collect hefty fees from parents.
Today, under Vadodara Association, the parents peacefully protested on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti at Gandhinagar Gruh. A large number of parents present at the event garland the statue of Gandhiji and showed the grief of their own mind.
“The government really seems to be helping the school administrators instead of standing with the parents in this epidemic,” said the parents present there.
The parents said that the announcement of 25 per cent fee waiver by the government has also raised some questions which need to be addressed by them immediately. This relief is subject to tuition fees or FRC. Will apply to all fees declared by the committee are some of the questions that the government should take a quick decision on such various issues. The government has not yet issued an ordinance. Within this ordinance, instead of 25 per cent, we have a feeling and demand that only tuition fee and only 50 per cent tuition fee be charged.
