Prime News, National (Lucknow), October 28:- Nationalism should be the biggest religion for everyone and a collective voice must be raised against the forces of Naxalism, terrorism, corruption and those who work against the nation’s interests, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said Saturday.
Speaking at an event here organised by Arya Samaj, a socio-religious organisation, he stressed that India is primarily an agricultural country in which “cow-based activities are worthy of being highlighted”.
A statement quoting Adityanath said his government has made substantial changes in the educational curriculum in Uttar Pradesh.
In the school curriculum, the government has added information about the life of great personalities and revolutionaries of the past, the BJP leader said.
“We have also discontinued the practice of giving public holidays in the name of these great people. Instead, educational workshops are to be held, so that young children can be informed about them,” he said.
Side by side, the system of Gurukuls would be re-established in which the school day would start with Vedic havans and chanting of hymns, the chief minister said. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
