NEW DELHI: 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), ann af­fil­i­ate of the RSS, will or­gan­is­er­gan­ise a sem­i­nar next Tues­dayes­day to dis­cuss the pro­pos­als, inn which Union hu­man re­source ource de­vel­op­ment min­is­ter is­ter
