With HRD Minister Kapil Sibal suggesting that fees or teachers' salaries in private schools cannot be regulated by government, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today said she will meet him to discuss the issue and arrive at clear-cut guidelines.

"I have sought an appointment with him (Sibal). Let us see what guidelines are going to come," she told reporters on the sidelines of a function here when asked about the Delhi government's view on the matter.

Sibal had reportedly said that the fees of private schools cannot be regulated and that each school had the right to fix the salaries of its teachers.

Asked whether her government agrees with the comments, Dikshit said, "No, no we will discuss the issue. I have only read about it in a newspaper report. We will talk it out and see what comes out of it."
