KATHMANDU: Educational institutions across the country have been shutdown today on the call of Association of Private Institution of Nepal (APIN)–an umbrella organization of private education institutions.
Some 7.5 million students of schools and colleges across the country have been prevented from their right to education due to the private schools’ owners.
The APIN called for the strike protesting the torching of school bus of Goldengate College by the students of All Nepal National Independent Students’ Union-Revolutionary.
Recently, the Goldengate College and All Nepal National Independent Students’ Union-Revolutionary are at the loggerheads.
The UCPN (Maoist) aligned students’ union has also called for an educational strike on Monday saying that the CEO Ramesh Silwal of the Goldengate College manhandled the student of union in the college and misbehaved with them.
