Smriti Irani roll backs Sanskrit from German Soup at Kendriya Vidyalayas

Smriti Irani roll backs Sanskrit from German Soup at Kendriya Vidyalayas


Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Smriti Irani today dismissed Sanskrit episode. This is latest controversy with her. Ms Irani said that teaching German under a Memorandum of Understanding or MoU signed in 2011 had been in violation of the Constitution. An investigation has already been launched to find out how the MoU was signed. The minister said that three language formula was very clear that any of the 23 Indian languages listed in Schedule VIII of the Constitution could be opted for. She clears that German will continue to be taught as a foreign language.

"My endeavour is whatever I do should be done so that it is within law and favours the students," she said.

('Education system is now a game of politics.' ...... if you don't like illiterate Smriti Irani, do you prefer earlier PM Man Mohan Singh as literate one.. Regional Politicians has to decide what our kids have to feed)

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday assured German Chancellor Angela Merkel that he would look into the controversy surrounding the teaching of German in Kendriya Vidyalayas or central government schools in the country. A decision to replace German with Sanskrit as a third language in these schools has disappointed Germany.

"Our Prime Minister assured her that he himself is a votary of young Indian children learning other languages. How it is best done within the confines of the Indian system, we will work it out," Syed Akbaruddin, India's foreign ministry spokesperson

German should be taught as a foreign language, similar to French, Mandarin etc. These foreign languages cannot be the third language under the constitution of India. Sanskrit, Tamil, Marathi etc. should be the third language, while German can be taught as the foreign language. Sanskrit is not going to give any advantage to the student.
