Keep in touch in this regard, some teachers say that in such emergencies, it is very important for the acting or permanent management to control their senses so that seeing their trust, thousands of other members of the institution will also feel frustrated. Instead of being in a state of panic, they can continue their work with self-confidence and humor, and like the current administration, by changing the schedule twice a day at an event, by keeping the canteen closed on hot days, 40,000 students are being harassed. If there are up to two or four cases, then inevitably thousands of subordinate teachers and employees will also be affected.
