Teachers in Haryana are set to face disciplinary action after they defied the state government order to attend a compulsory 'priest training' on October 29. The teachers in the state have been asked to take a training to carry out functions of priests ahead of the village fair at Yamunagar Temple.
The teachers who opposed the diktat and skipped the training session have been asked to explain the reason of their absense.
The Manohar Lal Khattar-led Haryana government wants the teachers to perform 'pooja' and even distribute 'prasad' during the 'mela' at the temple.
While there has been no comment from the ruling party, the opposition parties are hitting out at the state government for 'saffronising the entire event'.
