Congress govt in Madhya Pradesh to introduce courses in govt and private colleges on ‘life, ideology and policies’ of Rajiv Gandhi

The Rajasthan Congress has also decided to include a write-up on former Prime Minister and an integral of this league, Rajiv Gandhi in the revised social science textbook for schools from the next session.

Congress government in Madhya Pradesh, on Friday, decided to introduce special sessions in government as well as private colleges to teach students about the “life, ideology and policies” of former PM Rajiv Gandhi.

“The state government will observe 75th birth anniversary of Bharat Ratna Rajiv Gandhi the whole year, as ‘Yuva Sankalp Varsh’ by organising different programmes, competitions and inviting experts to inform the students about Rajiv Gandhi’s life, ideology and policies”, said the official.

The programmes will be held from August 20, birth anniversary of Late Rajiv Gandhi to May 21, 2020, his death anniversary.

The motive to organise such an event would be to make the students aware of work done and policies introduced by Rajiv Gandhi as PM, said the state higher education and sports minister Jeetu Patwari.

Congress has always been synonymous with the dynasty and until it ceases to exist it somehow will continue the dynastic propagandism.

The Rajasthan Congress has also decided to include a write-up on former Prime Minister and an integral of this league, Rajiv Gandhi in the revised social science textbook for schools from the next session.

Sources said the write-up will be the part of the chapter ‘Aazadi Ke Baad: Bharat Ka Swarnim Itihas’ in classes XI and XII. “Rajiv Gandhi will be introduced as the father of modern India who laid the foundation for information technology,” a source said.

While the Congress governments in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan are all set to glorify Rajiv Gandhi, one wonder if the curriculum will teach the students about the various transgressions of Rajiv Gandhi including the Bofors scam.

Though Congress has always blamed the ruling government for saffronizing the education system what is appalling that Congress’ self-absorption has always pulled them back from crediting India’s evolvement to anyone else apart from its own ancestry. They have distorted Indian history by exaggerating the work and achievements of Jawaharlal Nehru while giving less importance to the work of other freedom fighters like Vallabhbhai Patel and Bhimrao Ambedkar and  Veer Savarkar.

In May, Congress government in Rajasthan had decided to change the class 10 school textbooks in the state, reversing the previous BJP Government’s decision to include the contribution of freedom fighters like Veer Savarkar in the school curriculum. The textbook would now depict Savarkar as a traitor who begged for clemency from the British government. Going a step further the Ashok Gehlot government in June axed the prefix ‘Veer’ from freedom fighter Savarkar’s name in the revised Class X social science textbook in the state.
