HRD minister to attend RSS affiliate’s meet on new education policy Man uses carbon monoxide to kill disabled son, himself
The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is gearing up for another attempt to stamp its influence on India’s new education policy and put pressure on the government to include suggestions such as compulsory daily prayers in schools and colleges, sources said.
The Bharatiya Shikshan Mandal (BSM), an affiliate of the RSS, will organise a seminar next Tuesday to discuss the proposals, in which Union human resource development minister Prakash Javadekar will be one of the France’s Antoine Griezmann (third from left) celebrates with team mates after scoring his first goal. speakers. The high-profile event will be attended by Muralidhar Rao, the BJP national general secretary. This will possibly be Javadekar’s first public interaction after taking charge on Thursday. “The HRD ministry has made some parts of the policy public and we will discuss the policy with experts and give our suggestions too,” said Mukul Kanitkar, organising secretary of the BSM. The attempt is likely to reignite charges by the Opposition and many activists that the government is trying to “saffronise” education.
