In order to promote the Urdu language among school students around Bihar, the government has decided to appoint Urdu teachers to all the state-run schools in the state. According to the Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi, Urdu teachers would initially be appointed to the schools which are located near minority dominated areas and later they would be appointed to all the other government run schools in the state.
This initiative would help Urdu learning students to grapple with the language from very tender age and they could make their basses strong. Previously, there was a provision that states that Urdu teachers could only get appointed to such schools which have at least 10 students who are learning the language. But after the announcement by the Bihar Chief Minister, it would now be mandatory for all the schools, irrespective of the number of students pursuing Urdu as a language, have to appoint Urdu teachers. This initiative would help the minority students to gain confidence and go on with their preferred language.
