The West Bengal government has rejected to celebrate the Teachers Day according to the instructions of the Central government. The central government has issued an instruction for all the schools across the country on how the Teachers day which falls on the 5th of September 2017, is to be celebrated.
The instructions include, spreading awareness about the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, organizing sit & draw competition and other activities. But the West Bengal government has rejected these proposals of the central government, stating that the Teachers day will be observed like it is observed every year without any changes.
This is not the first time West Bengal government has refused the proposals from the central government, just days ago the West Bengal government refused similar proposals regarding the Independence day celebrations in schools. The West Bengal government is yet to give any solid reason for why they rejected the proposals of the central government. It all seems like an ego war between the Central and the state, which is not good for a country with federal structure like India.
