Maoists warn to shut down private schools in Nepal indefinitely
Kathmandu: Maoists have warned to indefinitely shut down all private schools in Nepal, if the institutions did not withdraw their decision to hike fee from the new academic session.

announced to hike the fees by 25 per cent.
The student organisation said it would be forced to hold protest programmes, including an indefinite closure of private schools from 14 April, if the decision to hike fee is
The ANNISU-R said that the decision to hike fees was taken unilaterally by the private schools without consulting the students.
"It is unfortunate that the decision of the private schools to hike the fees has been recognised and encouraged by the government instead of taking action against the private
schools that have been collecting exorbitant fees in an arbitrary manner so far," ANNISU-R President Lekhnath Neupane said.
