New Delhi, Sep 2 IANS | 21 days ago

The Congress Tuesday accused the government of politicizing the educational system in the country and of trying to alter the federal system of governance.


"In schools, a different kind of history is being taught," party leader Anand Sharma told the media here. "This is already happening in history books of Gujarat.

"Why is education being politicized? Institutions and research and science must remain out of politics," he added.

Sharma said Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not consult the states before deciding to do away with the Planning Commission.

"The arbitrary decision of dismantling the Planning Commission strikes at the base of our federal structure," he said.

"Has the sanctity of a cabinet form of government been upheld or a silent shift is being made to a presidential form where only one voice counts?"

Sharma added that Home Minister Rajnath Singh was not allowed to appoint his own private secretary.

"Around 18 ministers of the present government have serious criminal charges against them," he added.
