Dehradun. June 29: Congress leader and former Uttarakhand chief minister Harish Rawat lashed out at state chief minister Trivendra Rawat for reportedly suspending a school teacher who protested during a Janata Darbar session in Dehradun.
On Thursday, Uttara Bahuguna requested the Uttarakhand CM that she be transferred from the remote location asshe has been posted in such areas for the last 25 years. Bahuguna is a teacher in a government primary school in Naugaon area of Uttarkashi district. The Uttarakhand CM got angry and asked the police to take Bahuguna into custody after she reportedly used abusive language
"Our system has become so insensitive that a widowed teacher remained posted in a remote area for 25 years no one listened to her? Advise Chief Minister to direct police to release her and revoke her suspension," Harish Rawat told ANI.
Rawat later faced flak on social media for behaving as such and Congress leaders objected to his behaviour and lack of patience. But Rawat defended himself saying that the teacher was suspended after she used abusive language during the Janata Darbar, said reports.
