How Congress reacted

It is good to teach about Lord Ram and Lord Krishna in the book, but paper leaks, corruption and scams are sins, and the government should avoid them, said Madhya Pradesh Congress President Jitendra Patwari.

Speaking to ANI, Patwari said that the family has taught Lord Ram, Lord Krishna and love since childhood; every father says to become a good person; Lord Ram has taught it.

“They include it in the book; may God give wisdom; it is good, but the future of students gets affected due to paper leaks; its responsibility is with the government,” he added.

The Congress leader also asked what are the reasons behind recruitment scams in the BJP government.

"Who will take responsibility for them? It is good to teach about Lord Ram and Lord Krishna in the book, but paper leaks, corruption and scams are sins; the government should avoid them," ANI quoted Patwari as saying.
