Private schools are not very happy with this decision. According to Kashif Mirza, the secretary of all Pakistan Private Schools Federation, such decision will create massive traffic problem in the city. 9 AM is also the timing of all the offices, so there will be an un-controlled burden of traffic on the roads.
