Sagar raises alarm over safronisation of education

Senior National Conference leader Ali Mohammad Sagar here on Tuesday raised an alarm over what he called “safronisation of education” by the incumbent Central Government and current crisis over evaluation of papers in Kashmir University.

According to the KNS correspondent, Sagar while taking part in the debate on the motion of grants for education department alleged that higher education department is not being run well and tried to prick holes in the working of Universities. He said academics is not being run to shape the future of young generation and nowadays the central government is mooting the idea of scraping the contributions of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru the first prime minister of India from books taught in schools and colleges.

Asking education minister to work for overcoming the challenges he is facing in the backdrop of the attempts of the present central government to change educational institutions into centers of political controversies, Sagar said that divisive nature of education being propagated by the present central government should not be allowed to take roots both within and outside the state.
