CM Siddaramaiah credit to his teacher
Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has credited the rise in his political career to his teacher while paying tributes to the community on the occasion of Teacher's Day, saying he would have remained a cowherd if not for his encouragement.

 

"I would have remained a cowherd if I wasn't encouraged by my teacher to join school. I give full credit to him. Otherwise I wouldn't have been Chief Minister," he told a gathering in this town in Mysore district.

Siddaramaiah said he had never been to school between the first and fourth standards, but grazed cattle in his native village of Siddaramanahundi.

He especially urged government teachers to dedicate themselves to society, as their profession was of paramount importance to build a healthy nation.

"We see ethical values hitting a low now and this can be corrected only by a teacher. We all should be inspired by noble soul like Dr S Radhakrishnan, who gave India a new direction to build a good society," he said.
