The President of NISA and State President of Federation of Private Schools Welfare Association, Haryana, Kulbhushan Sharma said in a press conference in Chandigarh on Wednesday that the government should immediately release the pending list of schools running before 2003, and the list with the directorate of primary and middle schools should be released immediately.

Sharma added that the schools in Haryana are majorly primary and middle schools, which have been closed since March, so the right to education of children studying in them is getting violated. Due to the closure of schools, the students of budget private schools are being affected the most. They don't have access to laptops and smartphones, which makes the situation even worse.

If primary and middle schools do not get opened soon, there will be a considerable learning loss for such children, he added. The Federation's Gurugram General Secretary, Pankaj Sethi said that if primary and middle schools don't get opened soon, thirty per cent of the schools in Haryana will get closed, and their teachers will become unemployed.

Kulbhushan Sharma said that according to a report of the World Bank, it would cost 400 billion dollars to compensate for the damage caused due to the closure of schools so far. Hence, he appealed to the Haryana government to reopen primary and middle schools, just like the Punjab government. 

Federation's spokespersons, Nisha Sharma and Pinky Sharma said that the government's step to provide relief in land standards to schools running before 2003 is commendable, and they thanked the government for the same. They also pointed out that the list of schools is pending on the government's part, and it should immediately release the same so that more than 600 such schools can benefit from the exemption provided by it.
