Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): In view of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Bhopal on Monday, to attend BJP workers' Mahakumbh, most of the schools in the city will remain closed. Some schools have also postponed exams as students might face difficulties in reaching the schools due to heavy traffic and route diversions.
According to a Dainik Bhaskar report, parents have been informed about these changes for the last 2 days through SMS and WhatsApp messages.
On the other hand, the Education Department has not declared any official holiday. DEO Anjani Kumar said that no order has been issued to close the schools.
Most of the schools in BHEL closed
Most of the schools located in the BHEL area will remain closed on Monday. St. Xavier School spokesperson Vasundhara Sharma said that the main program of PM Modi is near St. Xavier, hence it is very difficult to open the school. Many other private schools present in the area will also remain closed. The school administrators have taken a decision regarding this at their level. Many school administrators also refused to talk about the matter.
Schools postpone exams
Many schools also had exams from September 25, which have been postponed. The principal has messaged the parents regarding this. The message reads that the exams will be held again soon. On the other hand, no message of any kind has been sent to the students in government schools. All such schools will continue to function as usual.
DPS Principal Ajay Sharma said that due to diversion of roads, it has been decided to declare holiday in all branches of DPS. “It has been seen many times that children get stuck in traffic or face difficulties in reaching school,” he added.
Group Director of IES School, Manisha Kavthekar said that the schools will remain closed on September 25 due to traffic diversion. Similarly, LNCT School Principal Chaitanya Saxena said that if children come from all parts of the city, they will face problems due to traffic, hence a holiday has been declared.
