Local Government Minister Saeed Ghani, who was speaking outside the Sindh Assembly, assured parents that no action will be taken against the private schools situated on residential plots.

I want to assure parents and school owners that taking action against private schools will be our last option, he added.

Private School Association Chairperson Tariq Shah thanked Saeed Ghani and SBCA.

“For now, we dont have any plans to shut down or seal schools.”

“I want to assure parents and school owners that taking action against private schools will be our last option”, he added.
