PATNA: Candidates across Bihar are currently engaged in protests against the newly introduced Teacher Recruitment Rules. The Nitish Kumar-led government has already clarified its stance on this matter. However, on Sunday, Education Minister Prof. Chandrashekhar addressed the issue, stating that the new education rules have been formulated in the best interest of the state.
When questioned about the ongoing demonstrations by teachers, Prof. Chandrashekhar acknowledged their right to protest while emphasizing the importance of passing the examination. Bihar aims to reclaim its rich educational heritage and strives to regain its status as a world-class hub of knowledge.
Regarding Arvind Kejriwal’s dissatisfaction expressed during a meeting of opposition unity, the Education Minister attributed it to a matter concerning an ordinance. He highlighted the need to evaluate whether the ordinance is beneficial for the state, the country, or the people of Delhi. The grand alliance will consider this aspect. Responding to Vijay Sinha’s statement suggesting that Lalu Yadav is being controlled by the BJP, Prof. Chandrashekhar dismissed Sinha’s stature as insufficient to comment on Lalu Prasad Yadav. He suggested that Sinha should focus on his own political endeavors rather than making statements about Lalu Yadav.
When questioned about the participation of all parties in the upcoming opposition meeting in Shimla scheduled for July, Prof. Chandrashekhar assured that leaders, including Arvind Kejriwal, will be present at the next meeting. It is worth noting that after a four-hour-long meeting of opposition leaders in Bihar’s capital, Patna, on Friday, Aam Aadmi Party convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal did not attend the joint press conference.
The Aam Aadmi Party later issued a statement expressing concerns about the Congress party’s stance on the ordinance proposed by the central government in Delhi. This has raised questions about the unity among opposition parties.
