Sharifs' homecoming: Rawalpindi to close schools, colleges today

RAWALPINDI, Sep 10: All government-run educational institutions of Rawalpindi will be closed today (Monday), the day former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif along with his brother Shahbaz Sharif will be landing at Islamabad airport, ending their seven-year long exile.

However, there will be no holiday in schools and colleges of adjacent Islamabad on the day. An official said the Rawalpindi district government had directed heads of all city colleges and schools to close their institutions today (Monday) to avoid any untoward situation in the wake of the Sharifs' landing in the city. He, however, said the non-issuance of any notice in this respect had confused parents about whether or not to send their children to schools and colleges. He said people had learned about the holiday on TV channels or in newspapers.

Meanwhile, Federal Education Directorate spokesman Rafique Tahir has announced that government schools and colleges in the capital will remain open. However, some private schools in Islamabad will be closed. Daily times
