#7th_phase शिक्षक नियोजन नियमावली पर मैंने हस्ताक्षर कर दिया है, अब ये कैबिनेट में जाएगा। 2023 में शिक्षा विभाग में 3 लाख से अधिक नौकरी मिलेगा। महागठबंधन सरकार ने 10 लाख नौकरी का जो वादा किया है, हम उसपर क़ायम हैं और उसे पूरा करके दिखाएँगे। #Mahagathbandhan #Bihar

The teacher candidates of Bihar were waiting for the approval of the 7th phase teacher reinstatement rules from the Cabinet. But the rules could not be approved by the cabinet leaving the candidates, who were eagerly looking forward to the recruitment, disappointed.
It seems the process of recruitment is not going to start anytime soon. In such a situation, there is a lot of anger among the candidates against the education minister. They are demanding the resignation of the minister for breaking his promises. They are also getting the support of other sections of the society on Twitter as well.
Upset over the unkempt promise of the minister, the teacher candidates unleashed their anger on Twitter. In the midst of all this the education minister was found busy in a rally of the Grand Alliance. The education minister is camping in Purnia for the last few days to take stock of the preparations for the rally.
Meanwhile, big news is coming out from the education system of Bihar, that due to the Grand Alliance rally in Purnia, Purnia University has postponed the graduation part-2 examinations that were to be held on February 25 but now will be held on March 15.
