While discussing the recruitment situation in Bengaluru, Bangarappa told the sources, “There are two problems in recruiting teachers. There is a legal problem that will be discussed by the Attorney General. Second, there is a shortage of teachers and guest teachers are not the solution to the problem. So it will be resolved as soon as possible.”
