Karnataka to remove textbooks of Tipu Sultan
"We are not going to allow anything about Tipu in textbooks," CM Yediyurappa said in response to a question at the meet.
The CM’s assertion at a meetthe-press event followed Primary & Secondary Education Minister S Suresh Kumar calling for a report on a letter submitted by BJP lawmaker Ranjan Appachu asking for deletion of everything about Tipu from school textbooks. “Ranjan has written to us. I have forwarded the letter to the textbook committee, asking them to hold a meeting at the earliest on the subject and called for a report,” the minister told ET.
Opposition Congress leader Siddaramaiah hit back at the CM for his remarks on the ruler of the 18th century Mysuru.
