Furious over her inability to do so, Pandey then can be heard saying that the teacher should be suspended immediately. “She’s a teacher, she can’t read. She should be suspended immediately,” he says.
“I am not asking you to translate the text, I’m simply asking you to read the text,” he adds when the teacher tries to justify.
The video comes a day after another video went viral on social media showing children at a government school in UP’s Sonbhadra district being served milk mixed with water as part of the mid-day meal.
