BJP leaders meet Dikshit, seek relief in school fee hike
New Delhi, April 29 (IANS) A delegation of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders Wednesday met Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and demanded relief for parents from the recent hike in school fees.
The delegation led by senior BJP leader Vijay Kumar Malhotra explained the issue to Dikshit.
'After listening to the BJP delegation, the chief minister said she will try to resolve the issue of increased fees and arrears. After the elections she will ascertain the views of all the parties concerned and find out a solution of the problem,' the BJP said in a statement.
Delhi BJP president O.P. Kohli said: 'It is the responsibility of the government that it protects the right of education of every student. Most people in Delhi are not capable of bearing the burden of the increase in fees and arrears in the time of price rise, unemployment and recession.'
Many private schools here have decided to hike tuition fees by 50 percent to raise the teachers' salaries in tune with the Sixth Pay Commission recommendations.
