The BJP is working on the agenda of RSS and Hindutva and its only aim is to rename historical places in the country, Rajasthan's Education Minister Govind Singh Dotasara said here on Saturday.

Talking to media persons, Dotasara said: "BJP is continuously working on the agenda of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Hindutva. Their only aim is to rename historical places. Even in the state's school curriculum, many changes have been made by the previous BJP government, which were not appropriate."

"I was shocked to learn that the BJP government had dropped the name of Rajasthan from the statewide talent search examination and renamed it as Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay State Talent Search Examination (PDUSTSE)."

"They should rather have introduced some new schemes named after Upadhyay. I have directed the officials to reinstate the word Rajasthan in the talent search examination," he said.

"Congress doesn't believe in changing either history or names like the BJP. We believe in quality and holistic education for the proper growth of our students," added Rajasthan's Education Minister Dotasara.

Education Minister Dotasara also held a meeting with the officials of the Central Board of Secondary Education Board (CBSE) and discussed various issues related to school education.

"I have asked the CBSE officials to review the changes made in NCERT textbooks by forming a review committee. We have also approached the subject experts and requested them to recommend changes in the textbooks meant for Classes I to XII students. The revised textbooks will be made available to the students from the next session 2020-21," said Dotasara.

In response to a question regarding the change in the schedule of the Rajasthan Public Service Commission (RPSC) examination, Dotasara said that the examination date was extended as the candidates did not get adequate time to prepare themselves for the examination.

"We earlier had sent a request to the RPSC to change the date of the examination citing an appropriate reason. They have accepted the request. So far the formal announcement has not been made but will soon be made," he said. (ANI)
