Protesting central government’s disastrous plan in education, Comrade Provash Ghosh, General Secretary, SUCI (Communist), has said in a press statement on 30 April 2018 :
We strongly condemn the statement of Shri Prakash Javadekar, the Union Minister of Human Resource Development that his government aims at the revival of the current education system on the basis of the new education policy, which is likely to incorporate the suggestions from the RSS chief Sri Mohan Bhagwat. He also hints at inclusion of Vedic education in the policy and introduction of ‘Bharat Bodh’ in class 11 and 12 that will contain lessons on ancient India. The Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has immediately lent his support to the statement. It is known to all that the BJP, the Sangh Pariwar and their cohorts have been trying for long to introduce unscientific, unhistorical courses and syllabi in all stages of education in the name of Bharatiatva, Hindutva, etc., which are against the spirit of secular and scientific education that the stalwarts of our immediate past that is of the Renaissance era like Rammohan, Vidyasagar, Phule, Rabindranath and others fought for. If the design of Sri Javadekar becomes successful, our country would slide down to the medieval age and culture. We protest against this heinous fascistic design and call upon educationists, teachers, students and all education-loving people to build up strong movement to foil the conspiracy of the BJP- RSS combine.
