All educational institutions remain closed across Nepal on Sunday due to the dispute between school proprietors and student s unions over the establishment of student s' union in the schools.
As a result, around 7.5 million student s of private and public schools across the nation have been affected due to the educational strike called by the Association for Private Educational of Nepal (APEN), a network of private educational institutions.
The APEN called the educational strike in protest against the arson carried out to a college bus of Golden Gate recently allegedly by the All Nepal National Independent Students Union (ANNISU)-Revolutionary and donation terror and threat at various educational institutions.
Vice-chairman of Higher Secondary Schools Association-Nepal, Ramesh Shilwal, said that the strike was called in protest against the ongoing donation terror and threat on private schools and against the Guidelines of the Educational Directorate.
He said they were compelled to call the educational strike also against the different malpractices including pressure to open student s unions and padlocking of schools by putting forth various undue demands.
