PESHAWAR: Officials of Private Education Network on Thursday said they were facing a gigantic financial crisis because of suspension of classes amid COVID-19 pandemic situation.
They said the session of the private educational institutes annually started in April, which could not start because of lockdown the following year. They had talked to the relevant minister, advisor and assistant to prime minister on the issue, but to no avail, they added.
