School Teacher Suspended For Taking Part In Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra

Bhopal: A school teacher has had to pay a price for attending Congress MP Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra in BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh.

Rajesh Kannoje, a teacher at a government elementary school in Kanasya district, has been suspended for breaking norms governing professional conduct and going to a political gathering. The suspension, which began on November 25, came to light after the order surfaced on social media.

Kannoje had sought leave citing ‘crucial work’. School authorities realised what his ‘crucial work’ was after Kannoje posted photographs of him at the yatra on social media, PTI reported.

They didn’t take long in deciding to send a suspension notice to Kannoje, an educator in the state government’s tribal affairs department.

The Kashmir to Kanyakumari yatra, flagged off from the southernmost town in India on September 7, entered Madhya Pradesh on November 23 after travelling through Kerala, Karnataka, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra.
