She tells our Correspondent Bharti Kumaithat sometimesthey only get 1 hour of teaching as the teachers have meetings to attend. 


The Principle Dinesh Das describes the difficulties, “But there are other subjects too like Hindi, Sanskrit, Urdu, Science, Chemistry and Biology.  So, classes of these subjects are not being taught.”
