Rajasthan Minister of State for Education (primary and secondary) Vasudev Devnani has said that major changes are being made in school curriculum so that “no one like Kanhaiya Kumar is born” in the state.
As per Devnani, the biographies of freedom fighters will be included to fill feeling of patriotism among the students.
“To inculcate the feeling of patriotism in students, major changes are being made in the curriculum,” the Rajasthan Minister of State for Education (primary and secondary) said in the assembly.
“In view of recent JNU incident, government universities have been asked to hoist national flag so as to inculcate patriotism in students,” State Higher Education Minister Kali Charan Saraf said.
The course curriculum of the state government schools students falls under the purview of state government. The central govt. by Bhartiya Janata Party has long been accused of making deliberate changes in course curriculum of varsities to spread its ideology. Now, the comment by a minister is likely to draw criticism by the opposition.
Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Students’ Union President Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested on sedition charge over a controversial event on the campus where anit-India slogans were allegedly raised. He was later released on bail.
