Usually our President or any President of a People for that matter speaks to express himself/herself in times of national jubilation and also in times of crisis. The media (including the state media) has reported the ongoing industrial action and please by the teachers for a revision to their salaries, to be an occassion of the highest national importance. However, the President who spoke to the nation live on TVM last night, at the inauguration of DhiTV, refrained from even hinting on the issue. His official website has no mention of it.
Only one question went through my mind as I watched a part of the live coverage: Why does the President continue to be silent on the plea by teachers?
