Anna movement to figure in school syllabus
Ranchi: The Jharkhand government is contemplating to include social activist Anna Hazare`s movement against corruption in school syllabus.
"When the Vinoba Bhave movement, the anti-British Quit India movement could be included in school syllabus, why can`t the Anna movement be included?" Jharkhand Human Resource Development Minister Baijnath Ram told reporters Saturday.
"We will talk to Chief Minister Arjun Munda over the issue," he added.
The minister extended his moral support to Hazare`s movement and criticised the central government for trying to suppress the right to protest.
Hazare is getting support from large sections of society in Jharkhand like lawyers, businessmen, students and youths.
Lawyers boycotted courts in Ranchi, Gumla and other districts Friday. Businessmen also kept their shops closed till noon Friday.
