“We hail everybody and nothing will be removed,” Javadekar revealed in the statement. Teachers have been asked to give suggestions for making any important changes in NCERT books, including factual errors. According to Naresh Agarwal (SP) removal of Urdu words and Mirza Ghalib from the textbooks has also been suggested.



Javadekar further mentioned that almost 7000 suggestions have been received. “We will not do anything which will create some problem”, he quotes further. O’Brien raised a concern over removal of Tagore’s works as suggested by RSS-affiliated Shiksha Sanskriti Utthan Nyas.

“Rabindranath Tagore does not need a certificate from anybody,” Derek said and asked the minister’s disassociation from the Nyas. While, D Raja (CPI) raised the issue about protests in the national capital by thousands of teachers and professors against the government’s policies in the education sector.

Javedkar mentioned that his ministry has been working with the teachers. “We are not dismantling anything,” he added.
