Modi govt forcing saffron agenda on young minds, future of the country: Bhagwant Mann

Chandigarh, July 11 (UNI() Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) state president and Member of Parliament (MP) Bhagwant Mann has strongly opposed the move of the Union Ministry for Human Resource Development to remove some key subjects from the syllabus of 9th and 12th classes through the CBSE, terming it a part of the BJP government’s saffron agenda being forced upon the young minds, the future vanguards of the country.

In a statement issued from party headquarters in Chandigarh on Saturday, Bhagwant Mann said that the BJP was hell bent on implementing its saffron agenda, which would be extremely detrimental to the Indian Constitution.

Bhagwant Mann said that the subjects which had been removed from the school syllabus under citing Corona epidemic had always been the eyesore of the Nagpur headquarters of the RSS.

Mann informed that the 30 per cent cut of the key subjects from the classes 9th to 12th syllabus included those which projected India as a country known for its unity in diversity, multi-lingual character and cultural diversity and taught the values of amity and mutual brotherhood and bonhomie and made students, the future vanguards of the country, responsible citizen.
