Hooda not to address students on Teachers' Day
Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda Tuesday said that he has no programme to address students on Teachers' Day (Sep 5) on the pattern of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Referring to media reports that students in Haryana will be addressed by him before the Prime Minister's televised address to school children, he said that there was no such move.
Hooda said that even in case of the prime minister's address, there would be no compulsion and the students would have option to attend or miss it.
Haryana's 90-member assembly goes to polls next month and sources said that close aides of Hooda wanted him address students before the prime minister.
