VIJAYAWADA: Demanding action against corporate schools for collecting huge fees and also to improve the facilities in government schools and hostels, the activists of Progressive Democratic Students Union (PDSU) staged a dharna in front of the Sub-collector’s office here Saturday.

PDSU state president A Ravichandra averred that students in most of the government schools had no access to toilets and other basic amenities. They were deprived of computer education due to lack of faculty. However, government was not bothered to make any efforts to improve the situation. On the other hand, the corporate schools were imposing huge burden on the parents through charging hefty fee, he alleged.

PDSU state secretary S Ram Mohan demanded immediate closure of unrecognised schools in the state and urged for construction of additional classrooms in government schools. 

PDSU city secretary P Govardhan, city vice-president I Rajesh and others also took part in the protest.
