Congress lambasts Edu Dept for procuring Modi books

The state Education Department is under fire from all sides for its decision to buy over one lakh books on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This time around, the Congress virtually blasted the state government. The state Congress President Ashok Chavan yesterday came down heavily on the ruling BJP and said that the BJP leaders needed psychiatric treatment.

The state Education department recently took the decision to buy books on the Prime Minister which are expected to be distributed to students, for extra reading, somewhere by the end of this month. Strongly reacting on the government's decision, Chavan accused the BJP of attempting to wipe out the country's tallest leaders from history to hide its own dark past. He said, “The BJP is indulging in such acts out of sheer intellectual frustration and hatred. Their own organisation has a black history. BJP leaders need physiatric treatment.”

Taking a dig at School Education Minister Vinod Tawde, the state Congress president said, “The decision to purchase books on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in higher numbers than those on leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Mahatma Phule and Dr. B.R. Ambedkar was a 'great Vinod' (joke). BJP leaders are busy in self-praise. The party had earlier removed the picture of Mahatma Gandhi from the Khadi and Gram Udyog calender and replaced it with that of Modi.”

“The government has tried to remove names of leaders who sacrificed for the country, and is spending money on the books of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, who made no contribution to the country. The BJP leaders are distorting the history by maligning tall figures and interfering in the education sector to propagate its own version. Also, deliberate attempt have been made to suggest that there was a rift between Jawaharlal Nehru and Sardar Patel,” he added further.
