Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Thursday that teachers will not be put on inspection duty in view of the bird flu situation in the national capital. There were complaints that the teachers were asked to inspect the markets and other places randomly to see if the guidelines were being followed in view of the bird flu.

Following the instructions of the Chief Minister, the teachers have been relieved of this duty. The District Magistrates have been instructed not to employ teachers without such permission. ”
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday issued a directive to open the Ghazipur poultry market. He ordered this after the bird flu was not confirmed in 100 samples taken from the market. A day earlier, municipal corporations in the national capital banned the sale and possession of poultry or processed “chicken” in shops and restaurants.
