New Delhi: BJP on Friday cautioned Delhi
Government against allowing the private schools to hike their
fees in the pretext of accomodating 25 per cent students from
the economically weaker section as per Right to Education Act.
Delhi BJP chief Vijender Gupta said BJP will launch a
strong protest if schools are allowed to increase their fees.

City government has already warned the schools not to
hike their fees and said the schools will be compensated by
the government for providing free education to EWS students.
The private schools have indicated that they will hike
the fee to bear the cost of providing free education to EWS
students.
