DSGMC Protested Delhi Government's Decision to Introduce Bussiness Courses in Place of A Regional Languages in Schools

By replacing regional languages with business course in schools Delhi government plans to cut ties with culture, traditions

 New Delhi / 4 May, 2016   

The President of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) Manjit Singh G.K. today said that the decision of the Delhi government to introduce business course as a sixth subject in class 9th in place of a regional language is well designed plan to break students of the families belonging to different cultural and traditional ethos form the roots which would directly lead to drifting from their religion.

Manjit Singh G.K. also president of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) in Delhi alongwith former MLA Harmeet Singh Kalka who is chairman of school education committee of DSGMC while addressing a press conference told the media persons that with the implementation of new decision of 5 April 2016 by which the education department replaced regional languages Punjabi, Sanskrit and Urdu languages with business course the students will lose the chance to learn their mother tongue and teachers teaching these language in all probability will lose their jobs in near future.

DSGMC president said that Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has snatched the very basic right of the students to learn their mother tongue and remain connected to their religion. The orders have strangulated education system making it redundant.

“It is a blatant violation of the education act 1968 and 1986 and by linking business subject with CGPA the regional languages had been shown the exit door,” said Manjit Singh G.K. According to him the decision has also taken away the opportunity from the students of class 9th and 10th to earn good CGPA which in the past they used to do by scoring good marks in the regional languages which happens to be their mother tongue and it also used to help them get admissions in good colleges for further studies. Now no student would like to be burdened by regional language as seventh optional subject, G.K. apprehended.

The decision of Delhi government has cut the umbilical cord of the people of Delhi who used to stay connected to their traditions, culture and ethos by studying regional language. The decision would also act adversely for the large number of students aspiring to take civil services examination by preparing in regional languages.

G.K.asked Kejriwal to learn from nations like Israel and China who stay connected to their language and culture and have emerged as strong nations. Without religion and culture a person has no identity and the decision has come as a big blow for the people belonging to different ethnicity and culture. DSGMC threatened to launch a stir in case the Delhi government failed to reverse its order.

DSGMC President questioned that in the absence of knowledge of Punjabi, Urdu and Sanskrit how would young generation learn to recite their religious scriptures. He also raised questions on silence maintained by Sikh and Muslim MLAs on the matter.

On the occasion Mahinder Pal Singh Chadha senior vice president of DSGMC, Amarjeet Singh Pappu Joint secretary and Harvinder Singh K.P., Capt. Inderpreet Singh, Gurvinder pal Singh, Ravel Singh, Jeet Singh, Harjinder Singh all Members of DSGMC and Vikram Singh and Gurdeep Singh both Akali leaders were also present.
