The Bihar education department on Monday issued the holiday calendar for 2024

November 28, 2023: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday launched an attack against the Nitish Kumar-led Bihar government for allegedly decreasing the number of holidays for the state's schools during Hindu festivals and increasing it for Muslim festivals.



The Bihar education department on Monday issued the holiday calendar for 2024 and said the chart has been created to ensure at least 220 teaching days under the Right to Education. Reports further said that the holiday calendar for the year 2024 has seen wholesale change, with the number of summer vacation days increased from 20 to 30. The education department has increased the holidays for Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha (Bakrid) to three days each.



Calling Nitish Kumar the "master of appeasement politics," Choubey claimed that once again the anti-Hindu face of the JDU-RJD government has come to the fore, alleging that the Bihar government "hates Sanatan for vote bank."

In a post on X, the veteran BJP leader said, "Once again, the anti-Hindu face of the uncle-nephew government came to the fore. On one hand, holidays for Muslim festivals are being extended in schools, while holidays for Hindu festivals are being abolished." "Shame on the government that hates Sanatan for the vote bank," the post added.
