Relinquish school fees for children, Mayawati requests the government
By Ankita Mohanty
In a Hindi tweet, the former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh has requested the government to reduce the cost of school fees in the wake of a global pandemic.
The Bahujan Samaj Party leader, Mayawati on Saturday has urged to government to take necessary steps to reduce the plights of struggling parents who are already suffering the wrath of coronavirus. In the Hindi tweet, she mentions that billions of people are suffering financially due to the pandemic whilst following government-imposed lockdown protocols. People who are already facing unemployment and unprecedented crisis, are now facing the challenge of depositing school fees for their wards, she has said.
In another tweet, Mayawati has explained that during the time of an ‘Act of God’ the government should be thinking about the country’s welfare. She has advised the Government and the states to cut down their royal expenses and in greater interest waive the school fees for children.
We hope that the Government consider this plea and relieve some stress from young parents across the country.
