The Hyderabad government has recently declared that all schools and other educational institutions in the state will remain closed on November 29 and 30, 2023. The holiday was announced by the collector of Hyderabad.
The Collector of Hyderabad told X (formerly Twitter) that all educational institutes will remain closed for two days and all regular activities will resume on December 1, 2023.
Why Hyderabad Schools are Closed on November 29?
The Hyderabad Government has released an official statement that states a holiday on November 29 and 30 on the occasion of the Telangana Assembly Elections for all schools and educational institutions in Hyderabad.
All the Hyderabad schools have issued a separate notice to inform the parents of the students that schools will remain closed on Wednesday and Thursday. Previously, it was announced by the state government that there would be a public holiday on November 30 for the employees and workers in Telangana.
After the announcement of a public holiday in Telangana on November 30, 2023, various reports were made that most of the IT companies are not declaring a holiday on Thursday due to assembly elections and are also asking to work from home.
Amid all the reports of not declaring holidays in the private sector, Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Vikas Raj has come forward and said in a press conference on Tuesday that he has asked the Labour Commissioner to verify whether all companies and organizations have granted a holiday on the polling day of November 30, 2023.
A memo is sent to the Labour Commissioner, which states that it will initiate stringent action as per the provisions of electoral law and other labor laws in force. Strict action will be taken against the firms and organizations that will not grant a holiday on November 30.
In the 2018 general elections and the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, complaints were made regarding private organizations and IT companies for not declaring holidays and violating the voting rights of people.
The results of the Telangana Assembly Elections will be announced on Sunday, December 3, 2023. All the preparations have already been done by the representatives for the elections
