The decision comes in the backdrop of the Madhya Pradesh State Election Commission announcing the dates of the panchayat polls.
Government school teachers in the state are deployed during the elections, and the cancellation of the summer vacation is intended to ramp up the poll preparations. The Madhya Pradesh poll body had approached the school education department to cancel the summer vacation for teachers so that training could begin without delay.
