Chief Minister Shri Kamal Nath has directed the Jabalpur collector to cancel the suspension of Shri Mukesh Tiwari, the teacher who made an objectionable remark against him.
He said that much hard work and penance is required to get a teacher’s post. Most important, is the family which is dependent on him. So I pardon Shri Mukesh Tiwari for passing a remark made in a rush of emotion.
CM Shri Nath said everybody has the freedom of expression in a democracy. I believe in this and have always been in its favour. This could be a violation of rules of conduct while on duty in government service.
Hence he was suspended. He said that on the second hand, I think it takes years of penance and hard work to reach the teacher’s post. His family must be dependent on him.
Due to suspension, his family will also have to suffer along with him. I do not want this to happen simply because of a remark passed against me. His suspension may be correct in accordance with the rules but I personally want to forgive Shri Mukesh Tiwari. I do not want any action to be taken
Shri Kamal Nath said that the work of a teacher is to create a society and give good education to students. He expected Shri Tiwari to give special attention to his duties in future.
The Chief Minister has instructed the district administration to cancel the suspension of teacher Shri Mukesh Tiwari and not to take any action against him.
Shri Tiwari should himself decide whether what he said for the Chief Minister of the government chosen by the people is appropriate or inappropriate. Shri Nath said that I do not wish to take revenge for anything that happened in the last 15 years. I can only assure that we will not do any work with a feeling of revenge and neither will we ever harass anyone.
