    Holiday for schools were declared in the morning. There are so many people who go to work in the morning and have no time to sit n read the news. Parents will be busy in getting ready thier kids to school n then getting ready to go to offices. If a holiday is being declared, it needs to be communicated well in advance n not at the last moment.

    Nobody is maintaining the speed level on the highways. First of all our, ministers must be a role model to all those who use vehicles. These uneducated and illiterate ministers must first learn to maintain speed. Inside the city also near the schools and hospital zones also they run their vehicles in over speed with sirens. What a shame. Rules only for common citizens.
