Due to concerns about safety in Punjab, the government is considering the possibility of closing down all schools and colleges in the province from January 25th to January 28th, 2024.
The Ministry of Interior has engaged in discussions with the Punjab government regarding a potential threat. Additionally, the Education Department has put forth the idea to the Chief Minister of Punjab that it might be a prudent decision to temporarily shut down schools.
It is highly likely, approximately 90 percent probability, that the Chief Minister of Punjab will grant final approval soon. We anticipate receiving the official notice either today or tomorrow and once it is released, we will promptly provide updates here.
In a related development, three major universities in Islamabad took swift action to close down yesterday due to safety concerns. The head of the police in Islamabad reassured the public that the situation was well-managed, with careful monitoring of all entry points.
Stay tuned for more updates! We will be sharing additional interesting information about schools and the latest news from various regions.
