The Punjab administration, led by the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), has decided not to prolong winter vacations in the province’s public and private educational institutions.
In this regard, Punjab’s Education Minister, Dr. Murad Raas, has stated that all public and private schools that were closed until January 6, 2022 due to winter vacations will reopen on January 7, 2022, as planned.
