Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday said that the priority of the government is to select teachers on merit basis.
Speaking at the occasion of Teachers’ Day, CM Yogi said, “Today we have vacancies of 97,000 teachers in primary education. But our priority is that these teachers are selected on merit. I see that some people are tonsuring their heads today with the demand that they be filled there without any competition. How will the system work if people want to go against the rules. It is the duty of the education sphere to create a discipline society.”
