Khotang, April 26: A dozen of school and campus teachers have resigned from their respective post to join active politics- to become a candidate in the local level election in the district.
They have resigned to file candidacies for the posts of the chairman of rural municipality and of wards. Although some have been sure of getting the election ticket, some are running from pillar to post to persuade the party leaders in their favour.
According to the District Education Office, even the temporary teachers have tendered resignation. District Education Officer Gyan Mani Nepal informed that although the concerned schools have sent letter informing the resignation of their temporary teachers, the files of the permanent teachers quitting job have been received for approval.
Although most of them have shown the reason of household and personal needs, some have even mentioned their willingness to become political candidate while tendering resignation.
