In the video, he can be heard asking students how many teachers are coming to the school.
The collector has now shared a video of himself with the students traveling to the school asking general questions.
Balaghat Collector and District Magistrate Girish Kumar Mishra put the recruitment of two teachers from a government school in Temni village on hold. On his way to a surprise opening of a school in Temni village of Betul district, Madhya Pradesh Balaghat Collector saw two students walking towards the school. The collector has now shared a video of him walking to school asking general questions to children. In the video, he can be heard asking students how many teachers are coming to the school.
One of the students replied that math, Hindi and Sanskrit teachers come to school to teach. Then the district magistrate asked if they knew the names of the teachers. The student also said that there are only two teachers in the school.
When the Balaghat Collector asked the students how many days the principal comes to school, the students remained silent for a few seconds, but then said that the principal visited the school two or three times a month.
Girish Kumar Mishra then asked what the principal taught them, and the students replied that he taught Hindi and English and no one teaches those subjects in his absence. Hearing this, the DM was stunned. Upon reaching the school, the facts shared by the students turned out to be true.
He then instructed the officials that the raises of the school’s principal Dileshwar Waghmare and primary school teacher Dhaansingh Dhurve should be stopped with immediate effect.
Earlier, last August, during a surprise inspection in an elementary school by Mishra, he asked the school principal to solve the math problem “441/4” to test her knowledge. When she couldn’t solve the simple division problem and gave a wrong answer. Balaghat Collector vehemently rebuked her for this and ordered the authorities to halt one of her increases and have her removed from the headmistress’ post. The video of the principal trying to solve the math question subsequently went viral on social media platforms.
