Effects on school children due to advance clocks
Advancing clocks hitting hard the school going kids
Peshawar, Oct 17: The government's decision of delaying the turning back of clock by one month is
really hitting hard the school-going kids. It is not very pleasant to see kids
waiting for their school vans in dark and shivering with cold (weather in
Abbottabad and its surrounding has become chilly) due to this decision. We do
not need electricity at the cost of miseries of our children. So please turn
back the clock as soon as possible. I hope other concerned parents would also
join me in making this demand.Abbottabad. The news
