Jaipur, Apr.2 (ANI): A case has been filed in a court in Jaipur, Rajasthan, against spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar over his charge that most government run schools are essentially breeding grounds for Naxalism.
"It's often seen that boys from government schools are into Naxalism and violence. Those from the private education system are not into these things. They move ahead with an ideal (adarsh) and teachers are responsible for it," Sri Sri Ravi Shankar had said at a school function last month.
"Government should not run any school, it should be given to some other system (samstha)," he added.
Human Resource Development and Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal said: "Sorry to hear his comments and this is not true. I studied in a government school and I am not a Naxalite." (ANI)
