KSO warns Govt
IMPHAL, Jul 11: Expressing strong resentment over State Government's plan of
closing down grant-in-aid (aided) elementary schools, Kuki Students'
Organisation (KSO) warned that the organisation with the help of other
fraternal organisations will fight tooth and nail against the decision and
the outcome of which will not be in the interest of the Government. The KSO
informed that there are 502 schools under the grant-in-aid elementary
schools in the State, out of which 252 are in hill areas. The Government
planned to close down 169 schools in which 60 elementary schools and five
high schools are in the hill areas, where there is no private school within
the reach of the people. Maintaining that it must be realised that closing
down of these schools will amount to denial of right to education, KSO urged
the Government to reconsider the decision.

any person indulging in such crimes would not be forgiven.
