Colleges and schools to finally reopen today

GANGTOK, 31 July: Government and private colleges and schools in the state will reopen from Friday after they were shut down in view of the disturbance and unrest in the capital due to a protest by college students.
The state administration has decided to deploy adequate police personnel to the college area to avoid any untoward incidents and monitor the situation in the state capital, DIG [Range] Dr. MS Tuli informed.
The situation is normal at present and there no trouble is expected, the DIG said, adding that the administration is still closely monitoring the situation.
Gangtok had become tense after a protest by college students against fee hike spiraled out of control. The HRDD had decided to close down schools and colleges in the state till 23 July at first which was later deferred to 31 July. With the shut down having come within a few days of the schools and colleges having reopened after the summer holidays, nearly the entire month of July has gone without classes at most schools and colleges here.
