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. “Gujarat government has introduced Bhagavad Gita in schools as per the National Education Policy (NEP).”

Responding to this, Minister Nagesh stated that the demand for introducing moral education has been growing.
