Expressing dissatisfaction over arbitrary fee hikes in private schools across the county, the All India Parents' Association on Saturday asked the National Advisory Council chairperson Sonia Gandhi to recommend the central government to bring in a law to regulate school fees.

The association, in a letter to Gandhi, said that while government schools lack basic infrastructure, unaided private schools exploit parents by charging huge amounts.

"The common man is unable to provide quality education to his child because government schools lack basic infrastructure and suffer from mismanagement, resulting in inferior quality of education," said Ashok Agarwal, president of the association.
