Karnataka schools closed, Universities postpone exams due to trade union strikes
BENGALURU: Most private schools in Bengaluru have announced that they will remain shut on Tuesday and Wednesday, on account of the two-day trade union strike.

The state government said the decision to remain open or close is left to individual schools and colleges, even as universities postponed various exams scheduled for the two days.

D Shashi Kumar from Karnataka Association of Management for Unaided Schools (KAMS), said, "We have recommended our member-schools to take a decision to ensure students are not exposed to any risk. Since there will lack of public transport, there is no point in keeping the schools open and troubling parents and students."

KAMS have about 3000 member-schools across Karnataka.
