Bengaluru, Feb 23 :Thousands of teachers, staff and heads of private schools across Karnataka on Tuesday staged a massive rally in the tech city against the state government's recent order to reduce fees by 30 per cent due to the Covid-19 pandemic disrupting classes.
"We have staged a rally in the city for the state government to reconsider its order to reduce the tuition fee by 30 per cent, as we are unable to run schools and pay salaries to teachers and other staff," said a member of the Karnataka private unaided school managements.
