All schools in Chandigarh will remain closed on Friday due to the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The exams that were to be held will be rescheduled.

Director Public Instructions (Schools) Rubinderjit Singh Brar said, “The decision has been taken so that students do not have to face any kind of inconvenience while coming or going to school, since some routes will be blocked and there will be traffic issues.”

“PM is not visiting the city for the first time but shutting the schools on his visit is something happening for the first time,” said a parent of a student.

A city resident said, “It’s unfortunate that children are put to such inconvenience because of VVIP movement in the city. It does not show the administration’s concern for the school students but it is an instance of gross maladministration. There should have been alternative ways to sort out this issue.”
