After Gujarat now Karnataka
Karnataka’s Education Minister B C Nagesh has stated that to decide on the inclusion of Bhagavad Gita in the school syllabus, a committee would be formed soon.
While answering a question in the Legislative Council Minister Nagesh said, “As per the National Education Policy (NEP), on the lines of Gujarat state, Bhagavad Gita will be introduced in the state after consulting educational experts also.”
Raising the issue in the Zero Hour, BJP MLC Pranesh demanded that Bhagavad Gita must be included in the curriculum in the academic year 2022-23. Responding to this, Minister Nagesh stated that the demand for introducing moral education has been growing.
The Gujrat government has already introduced the Bhagavad Gita in schools as per the National Education Policy (NEP).
Nagesh stated, “We will form a committee to seek opinion on the inclusion of Bhagavad Gita into the syllabus. Once the committee is formed, the matter will be discussed with CM Bommai and educational experts and a decision would be taken in this regard.”
