In a recently surfaced viral video from Bihar, two female teachers have made a heartfelt plea to authorities, urging a reconsideration of the school timings imposed by the Bihar education department. The teachers express the difficulties they face in reaching home in the evening due to the recent directive requiring them to be present at school from 9 am to 5 pm.

The Teachers' struggle after 5 PM

The video captures the teachers detailing the challenges they encounter after their shifts, emphasizing the impact of the changed schedule on their commute. The Bihar government's decision to extend teacher presence to a mandatory eight hours is now presenting unforeseen complications for some female educators.

As depicted in the video, the teachers highlight leaving the school premises at approximately 5 pm, with sunset occurring around 5:45 pm. This timeframe, coupled with the uncertainties of transportation, is causing distress for the teachers who must cover a distance of approximately 15 kilometers via bus to reach their homes.

BJP's call to action

The severity of the situation prompted one local BJP leader to address Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar directly, expressing concern over the potential dangers faced by women due to the current directive. In a social media post, the BJP state unit president urged the Chief Minister to reconsider the decision before it adversely affects the safety and well-being of women in Bihar.
