IMPHAL, Sept 5: The Teachers’ Day, 2011 was organized by the education (S) department today at the directorate office at Lamphelpat, Imphal.
The celebration was attended by Dr Kh Loken, chairman PDA and Dr J Suresh Babu, principal secretary education (S) as the chief guest and president respectively.
The coverage of the function was abandoned by the media persons including those of government-run media houses due to non-punctuality of the organizers. The programme was supposed to start from 9 am but nothing was done till 11:30 am.
Dr Loken had also reportedly left the venue furiously when the programme was not ready as per the schedule. However, he returned to the venue later at around 11 am and attended as the chief guest of the function.
The teachers’ awards and meritorious awards students were also distributed during the function.
