Vijayapura: Accusing the ruling BJP Government of pushing communal agenda in the school textbooks of the State, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee Spokesperson S. M. Patil Ganihar has said that the Government plans to create hatemongers and communal  elements and not good citizens.

Addressing mediapersons at the Congress office on Friday June 3, he said that when the Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai is not listening to the complaints on revisions made in textbooks, then possibly the orders are coming from RSS Headquarters in Nagpur. “This Government has become deaf and blind as it is neither hearing nor looking at the protests taking place in the State after Textbook Revision Committee Chairman Rohit Chakratritha made controversial changes in the school textbooks. From writers to thinkers to seers, all are alleging that the BJP Government is making unnecessary changes in textbooks, yet the Government is not ready to hear the grievances,” he said.

On the reports of Bommai seeking a report from the Primary and Secondary Education Minister B. C. Nagesh on the controversy, Ganihar equated the situation to police seeking a report from a thief for stealing objects.

“It is the Minister who is responsible for the present fiasco instead of taking action against him the CM says he has sought a report from the Minister which is completely absurd,” he said. He demanded the removal of Chairman of the Textbook Revision Committee and withdrawal of all the changes made in the books.

In his address, KPCC Doctors’ Cell District President Dr. Ravi Biradar also accused Rohit Chakratirtha of not only insulting eminent personalities such as Kuvempu but also giving false information on the history of Basaveshwara.

He said that many factual errors have been made in the Social Science subject of class nine on Basaveshwara.

“They are deliberately adding false information to appease the RSS and Veerashaiva who have been opposing Basaveshwara for generations,” he said.

Congress Leaders Nagaraj Lambu and Vasanth Honmode were also present.
