NEW DELHI: A government school teacher in Bihar, Harendra Rajak, was sent to jail for allegedly telling children in his class “nobody should vote for Modi“. A written complaint was filed against him by family members of several students.
Muzaffarpur SSP Rakesh Kumar said that Rajak was arrested for violating the election model code of conduct, following a FIR by the district education officer (DEO) Ajay Kumar Singh.
DEO Singh said that he had received complaints about Rajak posted at government secondary school at Amrakh in Kurhani block.from family member of students.
“A written complaint was submitted by the family members that children were being told by the teacher that nobody should vote for Modi since foodgrains unfit for human consumption were being distributed under the free ration scheme,” said Singh.
“A number of boys and girls from the class also confirmed that Rajak had been saying such things inside the classroom. Prima facie it was a violation of model code of conduct which forbids any government employee from trying to influence poll outcome by speaking for or against any political party. Hence, the FIR was lodged against the teacher for needful action,’ he added.
