President of Rawalpindi Chamber of Small Traders and Small Industry Sheikh Asif Idrees has said that private schools are playing a pivotal role in the education of children. Employment will increase and the economy will be affected. Eviction of 8,300 private schools out of 42 cantonment areas across the country is likely to ruin the future of more than 4 million children studying in these educational institutions. 496 educational institutions in Rawalpindi Cantt alone will be closed. During Code 19, no work could be done in all the countries including Pakistan due to which private educational institutions could not make arrangements. We appeal to the Supreme Court to give time to private educational institutions so that they can manage themselves.

The government pays crores of rupees annually to the private educational institutes in terms of taxes and equips millions of children with modern and quality education. The government should immediately withdraw the notices sent to the private institutions.
