Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Saturday donned the role of a teacher and went back to his alma mater, where he taught students different subjects and also exhorted them to become ideal citizens. Chouhan taught at the Sanjay Gandhi Middle School, where he had studied from Class VI to VII, as part of a day-long mass teaching event, ‘Mil Banchey’ (let’s read together), organised by the State Government. The Chief Minister gave lessons in maths and Hindi language with students listening to him in rapt attention. Going beyond books, he spoke on the issue of patriotism and called upon pupils to become ideal citizens and serve the nation.
