Indore: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister
Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that "Bhagwad Gita" would be
included in the school curriculum in the state.
"Teaching Gita is no crime and the government would
include teaching of Gita in educational curriculum," Chouhan
said while addressing a function organised by the RSS-backed
Saraswati Vidya Pratishthan here yesterday.
Observing that English has been overemphasised
compared to other subjects in the school curriculum, the chief
minister said his government`s priority was to "correct" the
curriculum and promote importance of Hindi.
He also said that most of the government work is done
in Hindi and the state would not hesitate to encourage any
good work done for promoting Hindi.
