Assam teacher suspended for proposing student with flowers at Training Centre

Reports indicate that the teacher was an affiliate of the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojna, which is centrally funded (DDU-GKY).

Manoj Kumar, a teacher from India proposed to his trainee girl by dropping to one knee right in the middle the class. The dramatic moment quickly went viral because students filmed it on their phones.

The officials took note of this and dismissed Kumar, while also suspending the girl student.

One of the trainers said that while they knew certain things, they didn’t expect him or his to do so.

“We took immediate action against him and the girl as soon as we became aware of the situation, along with those who had shot the video,” he said.

DDU-GKY’s goal is to pay monthly wages that are equal or higher than the minimum wage for rural youth. To promote rural livelihood, this initiative was taken by India’s Ministry of Rural Development.
