Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on 5 September said that he, in his tenure, has ensured that teachers in the state receive a respectable amount as their salaries.
Chouhan, while addressing a gathering here, on the occasion of the Teachers' Day said, "We changed the culture here. We made it better for the teachers. We created a respectable environment here. We ensure that the teachers are paid well."
He further took the occasion to criticise the Blue Whale game, which has claimed lives of numerous children across the nation.
"The Blue Whale game is not a part of our culture. I have called for an investigation into the matter," Chouhan said.
He further paid respect to all the teachers and said that had he not joined politics, he would have chosen to become a teacher.
