Reacting to the Gujarat government’s recent proposal to introduce Gita in the curriculum across grades 6 to 12, Delhi deputy CM Manish Sisodia had an observation. “Definitely it is a great step but people who are introducing it need to practice the values of Gita first. Their deeds are like Raavan and they talk about Gita.”
He is also the Delhi Education Minister. While hailing the principles and virtues enshrined in the text, the minister’s comment might just invite more ire than asked for.
Gujarat Government’s education minister Jitu Vaghani, on Thursday, announced the introduction of Gita onwards the academic year 2022-23.
