After directing the central government to deal with the ‘anti-national’ activities on university campuses, the RSS has now told Modi government to focus on value-based and nationalistic education in an atmosphere of equal opportunity.
The RSS, in the annual meeting of its highest decision-making body Akhil Bhartiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS), had on Friday asked governments to “deal strictly with anti-national and anti-social forces and ensure the sanctity and cultural atmosphere by not allowing our educational institutions to become centres of political activities.”
PTI reported that the RSS passed two resolutions on education and medical and healthcare, while calling upon the state governments to make efforts to make these two sectors accessible to all the people in the country.
A resolution said the ABPS was of the opinion that every child should get “value-based, nationalistic, employment-oriented and skill-based education in an atmosphere of equal opportunity”.
Anirudh Deshpande, Akhil Bhartiya Sampark Prakukh of the RSS at the press briefing on the second day of the three-day ABPS meet said,”Privatisation and commercialisation of education has created difficulties for the common man to get their wards quality education. Quality education should be available to all at an affordable price.”
RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat, BJP President Amit Shah and other leaders were present in the meeting which began on Friday.
