Kolkata (West Bengal), Aug 26 (ANI): Union Minister of State (MoS) for Education Dr Subhas Sarkar on August 25 said that there is no democracy in West Bengal after he visited the NRS hospital to meet the teachers who tried to commit suicide. In a shocking incident, five women contractual teachers of primary schools in West Bengal allegedly attempted suicide on August 24 in front of the Bikash Bhavan, which houses the state's education department, in protest against their transfer to places far off from their homes. "There is no democracy in the state. These teachers have been deprived of financial rights as they tried to commit suicide," said Sarkar.
