SHILLONG, Dec 06: In a startling revelation, it has been found that the state’s new education policy debars teachers working in government schools and also deficit school teachers from contesting elections in the state.

In this regard, Education Minister, Lahkmen Rymbui said that the new education policy bars teachers of Government aided schools and deficit teachers from taking part in part in politics.
He justified the government’s stand by stating that full time people are required in the education sector and education should not be mixed with politics. He also said that allowing teachers to take part in politics will hamper the development of schools.
