Education board includes chapter by ex-RSS chief, Political storm in Rajasthan

Education Board of Rajasthan’s decision to include a chapter on Earth and the Environment authoured by late RSS chief KS Sudarshan to be teach in the Class 11 syllabus has triggered a political storm in the state. Congress alleges that BJP is doing saffronisation of the education wherever they are ruling.

The inclusion has the opposition up in arms. Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee secretary Mahendra Singh Ralawata alleged that ever since the BJP government came into power in the state, it has been trying to saffronise education.

Penned by Sudarshan, the chapter ‘Dhara aur Paryavaran’ will be taught in the Class 11 syllabus in government schools across the state.

Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee secretary Mahendra Singh Ralawata has alleged that ever since the BJP government came into power in the state, it has been trying to saffronise education.

The state education committee, however,has rejected the Congress charge.

It says that the chapter by the former RSS Sarsanghachalak has no link to politics or any saffronised views. The committee chairman Ashish Sisodia says that Sudarshan penned his thoughts purely as a writer and his role as RSS chief had no bearing on subject.
