Schools in Puducherry and Karaikal regions will reopen on June 12 instead of tomorrow in view of the continued hot weather, Agriculture and Education Minister R Kamalakannan announced in the Assembly today. During zero hour, the minister said though the schools were already having limited working days and the syllabus had to be covered, the administration has now decided to extend summer vacation for both government and private schools.
The schools would reopen on June 12 as was requested by members because of the continued hot spell, he added.
Members cutting across party lines had earlier pleaded with the government that the reopening date be put off as the hot spell continued.
