Faridkot, July 8

Members of the Association for Education Providers today organised a protest march here, accusing the state government of not allowing the educational institutions and centres to open, but giving the nod to the opening of malls, hotels, restaurants and even the public transport.

"How are hotels, restaurants different from educational centres when it comes to the risk of spread of virus from their opening," asked a protester, adding that small institutions provided employment to thousands of people and catered to the needs of lakhs of students.

They demanded the state government to allow the institutions to open, which included immigration, IELTS, computer and coaching centres.

"We are on the verge of bankruptcy. For the past three months, we have been struggling to pay the salaries of our employees, who are struggling to make the ends meet," alleged the protesters.

Earlier, representatives of various IELTS and coaching centres had met Industries Minister Sunder Sham Arora, and C Sibin, Director, Industries, and urged them to allow the opening of their institutes. The minister had reportedly assured them of a possible solution at the earliest.
