Ahmedabad, June 12 (IANS) If a schoolteacher in a Gujarat village is neglecting his or her duty, villagers now know what to do: Just drop a postcard to Chief Minister Narendra Modi. Launching a campaign to promote the girl-child education from Porbandar district, Modi appealed to the villagers to write a postcard to him if the school teacher was not regular in taking his classes.

“If an engineer commits a mistake, a project or scheme is affected, but if a teacher commits a mistake a whole generation is affected,” he said.

“Once I receive a complaint, necessary action against the erring teacher would be initiated,” he assured the gathering.
