"Students should not forget their own culture. They should stop saying 'hi' or 'hey' to greet each other and should touch feet of their teacher with a 'pranam'," Manjhi said at a function to mark the Teachers' Day here.

He announced that government will open one primary school for every 40 families in the state and work is already on to have one higher secondary school in each panchayat.

He targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address to school students on the occasion of Teachers' Day by saying that "education should not be politicised".

He said that most of the students in the state government schools were unable to listen to the prime minister due to lack of infrastructure.
