New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday called the national level board of education as “Central Board of Suppressing Education”, days after the CBSE removed several chapters from the history and political science syllabus of classes 10 and 12.
He further targeted the RSS over the modification of the syllabus and termed it ‘Rashtriya Shiksha Shredder’. He added an image that shows a shredding machine cutting topics like democracy, diversity, the impact of globalization on agriculture, non-alignment movements, the Mughal Court, and poems of Faiz being shredded.
