Bihar teachers told to click pictures of open defecation

Patna (Bihar): The Bihar government has charted out a peculiar duty for the school teachers of the state – to keep an eye on open defecation and also click photos of those found relieving themselves in open.

In a notice issued by all Block Education Officers, the teachers have been allotted one of the two shifts to discharge this duty – 5:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

The school principals, on the other hand, have been asked to supervise the task.

This is not the first time that Bihar’s teachers have been asked to do a job outside their profession.

In the past, teachers have been posted on census duty, election duty, and have had to compile voters’ list. (ANI)
