Bhubaneswar, Aug 9 (UNI) Hundreds of teachers today resorted to mass squatting before the Raj Bhawan here demanding enactment of Central Legislation on Right to Education.
The agitation was organised to mark the day as National Demand Day for Right to Education through Common School system in response to a call given by the National Campaign Committee on Right to Education through Common School System (NCCRTECSS).
