Educational technology company Unacademy sacked a teacher who allegedly appealed to students to vote for educated candidates. Defending its decision, the edtech firm said that the classroom is not a place to share personal opinions and views.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also weighed on the issue and wondered whether urging people to support educated candidates constitutes a crime. "Is it a crime to appeal to vote for educated people? If someone is illiterate, personally I respect them. But public representatives cannot be illiterate. This is the era of science and technology. Illiterate public representatives can never build the modern India of the 21st century," he wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.
