Decision on review of textbooks will be made after full report, says Karnataka CM Bommai

Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said on Wednesday that the decision on revising the textbooks would be taken soon after receiving a full report on the matter. The Chief Minister was addressing a press conference in Udupi as part of the celebrations of the Narendra Modi government which ends 8 years in office at the Centre.

The state government, responding to the demand of many literati to review textbooks, has already requested a full report from the Minister of Education on the matter. The opinion of seers and others on the matter would be considered. The Minister of Education was asked to submit a comprehensive report with full facts. A proper decision would be made after receiving the report.

“We will have the report tomorrow and it will be discussed with the literati,” Bommai said. Responding to a question about corruption, Bommai said, “The ACB has been strengthened. Although we have the Lokayukta, it was not possible to file a complaint with Lokayukta under the anti-corruption law. However, the ACB has the power to do so. .”

Reacting to the issue of ‘Love Jihad’ which is once again causing concern in the coastal region, Bommai said, “Laws have been made to deal with it. No one should break the law.” (ANI)
