Rise in number of festival holidays likely in schools

Saturday, 13 July 2019 | Staff Reporter | Bhopal

With a private member’s Bill, the legislators of Madhya Pradesh have expected to increase the number of festival holidays in the schools.

A private member’s resolution passed by the house with voice vote wants the government not to hold any exam immediately after the festivals, especially after the festival of colours, Holi.

The resolution was moved by the Congress MLA from Bargi in Jabalpur, Sanjay Yadav. And it was passed by the house with voice vote in the late afternoon on Friday before the assembly was adjourned for four days - from Saturday to Tuesday.

While talking to media persons inside the assembly premises Sanjay Yadav said that gradually the number of holidays during Dussehra, Diwali and Holi is decreasing.

The school children are not able to enjoy the

festivities.

They are also not able to connect with their religion and culture. He said that in the past Dussehra and Diwali festivals in schools would last for 24 days.

For the past many years, exams, especially board exams coincide with the very next day of Holi. Parents do not allow children to enjoy the festival because of exams.” The private member’s resolution passed by the house will now go to the school education department for consideration.
