The government has also made it mandatory for school staff, teachers and parents to get themselves inoculated against the viral disease.
Private Schools Association has decided to launch a movement titles “Save Schools”. Parents ask that why schools are closed, when everything is open. While, the opposition parties have also criticized the decision.
Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) Chairman Mustafa Kamal said that the Sindh government’s decision to close schools for one more week was based on injustice. He said the Pakistan Peoples Party was running the government on the basis of racial prejudice. He asked if coronavirus SOPs were being implemented in any party of the megalopolis.
