Recently the Department of Public Instruction had issued an order to all schools to compulsorily purchase the book written on the state Chief Minister Siddaramaiah political life and his people-friendly policies. However, the order was withdrawn when objections were raised against it. First of all, the issue of the original order was not warranted, when the state is already facing several controversies on different issues. Why to issue such an order and later cancel it? It is sure that without the political interference, the original order might not have been issued. Can’t the senior politicians anticipate such an objection coming from the public or media? Not only this, nowadays it has become a routine for many prominent personalities of the country to air their views without any caution leading to unnecessary controversies and agitation in public. It is better if they restrain from such activities.
