Row in Kerala as teachers told to visit kids with CM Pinarayi Vijayan’s message | India News

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A Kerala government directive to school teachers to go from door-to-door delivering leaflets carrying CM Pinarayi Vijayan’s message and greetings to kids entering Class I in government and aided schools this year has sparked a row. The directive was issued on Saturday.
While a pro-Congress teachers’ outfit questioned the motive behind such an order, especially in view of the pandemic situation, a CPM-backed teachers’ association welcomed the move. Kerala Pradesh School Teachers Association members have registered their protest against the directive and asked the general education department to spare teachers from door-to-door distribution of the leaflet. “It’s a politically-motivated move. The direction tests the common sense of public and puts at risk the lives of those involved,” said KPSTA state chief M Salahudheen. If the CM wants to give a message to kids, he can give it online, he added.
Kerala School Teachers’ Association welcomed the move. “This is what the children and society want. A message from CM, when served at the doorstep of Class 1 students in these tough times should be welcomed by all,” said KSTA general secretary NT Sivarajan.
