Human resource development (HRD) Minister Smriti Irani rejected demands for compulsory curriculum in Sanskrit emphasizing that education is not being saffronised.
The decision was made to light the controversial decision to substitute German Sanskrit as a third language in some key state 500 Kendriya Vidyalayas.
According to the HRD minister, German education violates the Constitution. A Memorandum of Understanding or MOU was signed between Kendriya Vidyalayas and Goethe Institut Max Mueller Bhawan in 2011 made German as a third language and why it had launched an investigation to find out how he signed the MoU.
It is a known fact that some of the 23 indigenous languages listed in schedule VIII of the Constitution may be the third language, but only German minister taught as a foreign language.
Students can now choose any modern Indian language as the third language after the withdrawal of the German option in Kendriya Vidyalayas.
You should be aware that in 2001 went beyond CMI makes compulsory English as wood, opening an opportunity for a regional language as an additional item only if 15 or more students, Sanskrit and Hindi opted for this. This system continued until 2011 when Germany emerged as an option.
