PM's Teachers' Day address: Some Delhi private schools unhappy over govt order

I dont understand. The teachers should be happy that they have a PM who wants to interact with kids. They can always take a half/full day off later. Saturday and Sunday is anyways off.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's initiative to reach out to every student through TV, radio and the internet on Teachers' Day has failed to enthuse private schools of Delhi which feel that "forcing" them to make arrangements for it will dampen the celebration of the occasion.

The directorate of education (DoE) of Delhi government has issued a notification directing all private as well as government schools to organize a broadcast of the Prime Minister's address and a question and answer session with schoolchildren through television or through internet from 3pm to 4.45pm on September 5.

The directive clearly states that, "Any laxity in the arrangements shall be viewed seriously."

The DoE notification came following an order by ministry of human resources development that all the schools throughout the country will have to make arrangements so that students can watch the Prime Minister's live address on TV.

The government directive asked all head of schools to make available the requisite number of televisions, set-top box connections, projectors, screens, amplifiers and generator sets or inverters on hiring basis, if these are not available in the schools.

Though a number of private schools termed the initiative as "good and positive", they feel making the necessary arrangements for showing the address to the students will put lot of burden on the teachers and they will not be able to celebrate the day.

"It's a good initiative on the part of Prime Minister to bond with students and also take efforts to enhance the image of teachers in the eyes of students.

"But Teachers day is a special day for the teacher's to enjoy. So though it is a good initiative, teachers will end up spending the entire day to ensure implementation of the government directive," said Ameeta Mulla Wattal, Principal of Spring Dales, Pusa road.

Madhulika Sen, Principal of Tagore International school, Vasant Vihar said many private schools will find it difficult to make the arrangements for showing PM's address to the students. more

I see repetitive statements here. There is no justification left with you, I can see.

The BJP won 282 out of 543 contestable seats on just 31% of the vote share.
Where do you see your opinion? 125Cr to think alike : not required.
You must agree, this 31% is not all for NM, but other factors as well.
Where does NM stand?

Just facts for your high held opinion:

The 2014 General Election, witnessed 553.8 million voters cast ballots to constitute the 16th Lok Sabha, making it the world’s biggest democratic exercise.
The turnount in this election: 66.38%, the highest was 64.01%, recorded in 1984. 2009 was 58.21%.
Out of the total 834,101,479 electors, 553,801,801 people casted their vote.

Costing such a huge expenditure amount to the government exchequer, the recent election ranks among the costliest in the history of democracy.

"to take nation forward has to have a trait of dictator": Such a foolish approach, which makes this nation a slave.
You don't understand democracy at all.
Well, your opinion does matter, more than mine. Because you are pushing the nation behind with such slavery ideas. It must be revised. more  
our country is a big democratic country of 125Cr people.When two people can not think alike and differ on so many points how do you expect 125Cr to think alike and agree . And our country has so much of diversity in religion ,believes and culture. Thus difference of opinion is apart of excepted norm in a big democracy . There fore your opinion really does not matter ,when majority thinks otherwise. NM has got a record mandate . Tell me one leader irrespective of party who can be any where near him. Secondly to take nation forward he has to have a trait of dictator also. Otherwise you can not move ahead. MMS was like one who wanted con senses on every thing and thus failed. This reminds me the story of Father& Son and Donkey. At the end they lost every thing. You simply can not satisfy every one to move forward. We have lost 60 years and have gone back by 20 years countries like Brazil etc.
What matters is the progress and that too a fast one to cover up loss. more  
Good point Mukesh. Nation has given him a mandate to become a dictator. All the teachers, Principals are also sick. Sir, there is a large part of this nation who did not five him mandate, keep this in mind. If you mean to say all those who won elections in India have been good and decent people, you need to think again.
You cannot justify your own statement. more  
You are sick.The nation has given him a mandate. Must remember that. more  
Mr. Ratti! I read your lines again and again. Sorry, I see all praise and living in a dream world. You need more thinking as this sounds just a good publicity of Modi. more
