Sagar cautions J&K Govt over alleged attempts to saffronise education sector

Senior National Conference leader and MLA Khanyar on Tuesday asked the Jammu and Kashmir government to remain cautious against the alleged attempts made by New Delhi to saffronise the education sector of the country.
Sagar was speaking during the grants for education department.
“As Drabu Sahab surrendered before government of India and implemented GST here, same attempts will be made for you to saffronise education sector but we expect that you will resist,” Sagar said while addressing the education minister Syed Muhammad Altaf Bukhari.
“Attempts are being made to change the syllabus in schools and changing names of universities and other institutions which are named after Muslim leaders,” Sagar said.
He said BJP in New Delhi even wants to omit out chapters of Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru from school text books.
Sagar also alleged that the Kashmir University, which was the highest seat of learning, has become a centre for rehabilitation of relatives.
“If you check the records, people at the helm of affairs have accommodated their relatives,” Sagar claimed.
