Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech on the last Teachers Day was a great hit but several of the schools in the country defaulted in its proper implementation –some on the ground that they had no necessary paraphernalia available with them for the purpose and some wilfully including those for political prejudices. Certain political parties openly opposed the programme. The government has now come out with a threat of action against those schools who defaulted. Since it was an official programme where Prime Minister was involved, there should normally be no pertinent an excuse to play any defiance on the part of any body whether individual schools or the political parties but the question is whether any action taken in the matter can be a justifiable one, more so in the case of different political parties who feel that they themselves are all powerful to go the way they want and none is supposed to go against them. It has yet to be seen what a turn it finally takes.
