delhi Updated: Apr 27, 2009 16:25 IST

Opposing the fee hike in schools, hundreds of parents on Monday protested at various places in the national capital region and demanded its immediate rollback.

The parents association of Guru Nanak Public School, Rajouri Garden, staged a demonstration and criticised the school authorities over the fee hike.

All India Parents Association (AIPA) also extended its support to the demonstration.
"Interestingly, the children also shouted slogans from the classrooms when the parents were protesting outside," Ashok Agrawal, president of AIPA, said.

The matter of fee hike has been challenged in the Delhi High Court. The court would hear the case on April 29.

Similar protests were organised at Greater Noida and Dariyaganj also. The protests led to traffic jam at many places.
