Politician Ajay Singh Rahul raised question on Makhanlal Chaturvedi Journalism University’s book in Vidhan Sabha. The guy who killed Mahatma Gandhi, is he a great personality? He told that, in this Nathuram Godse and Ravan have been termed as great personalities. Monika Verma and Surendra Pal are the authors of the book.
Before this, on Wednesday leaders didn’t let Vidhan Sabha session run because of the controversial comment on Gond Community in a MA reference book namely “Bharat Ka Bhoogol”. On Thursday, Higher Education Minister Jaibhan Singh Pawaiya presented his views on the topic.
He gave reference of NCERT book and said -“Indecipherable comment has been made on Jain saints. The brave community of Jat have been termed as disobedient. All these are in a book named NCERT text book controversies. Then their party was not ruling.”
This statement of Pawaiya created chaos in the house. Higher Education Minister said-“the book which has been referred here and ruckus is being created has not been approved by syllabus community of the government”. Principal of Mahakaushal Arts and Commerce College has been suspended in this case. The department has directed to keep a check on the trade of the book published by private publishers.
