The Private School Association has announced the closing of all private schools in Rawalpindi and Islamabad for the next two days.
The decision was taken to prevent any unfortunate situation due to Pakistan Tehreek-e-insaf planning a long march on 25 May.
“As a result of the protest of the PTI, all private schools will remain closed on 25 and 26 May,” the association said in a statement, adding that the future action plan will be announced after looking into the situation.
The association has indicated that all examinations scheduled on these days will be postponed to other dates and has asked schools to inform parents of the decision.
At the same time, PTI Chairman Imran Khan reiterated on Tuesday that the long march against the “imported government” will take place at any cost. He also called on the country to “break the chains of fear” and come out in large numbers on 25 May.
