With the Punjab government sending a second batch of 30 school principals to Singapore for training, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Friday asserted that the process to select these teachers is completely transparent.


Punjab Governor Banwarilal Purohit had questioned the selection process of government school principals for a foreign trip when the first batch was sent last month, saying he had received complaints of “malpractices and illegalities”. Mann had reacted sharply, saying his government is answerable only to Punjabis and not a Centre-appointed governor.

Speaking to reporters here after interacting with the second batch of principals, Mann said his government is committed to bringing qualitative transformation in the government school education.
