Arvind Kejriwal Launches ‘Deshbhakti Curriculum’ For School Students
New Delhi: Every child in Delhi will be a patriot in the true sense, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal exuded as he launched the AAP government’s ambitious ‘Deshbhakti Curriculum’ on Tuesday.
At the launch event held at Chhatrasal Stadium on the birth anniversary of revolutionary freedom fighter Bhagat Singh, the Chief Minister remarked that nowadays people feel patriotic only while raising the Tricolour or singing the national anthem.
But patriotism has to be a continually evolving feeling within everyone, he said.
“In the last 74 years, we taught Physics, Chemistry and Maths in our schools but did not teach ‘Deshbhakti‘ to the children. Patriotism is within all of us but it needs a push. Every child in Delhi will be a patriot in the truest sense.
The ‘Deshbhakti Curriculum’ will prove to be instrumental in the country’s development and will take India forward rapidly.”
“Today we only feel patriotic while raising the Tricolour or singing the National Anthem. The problem is it only props up when we do something of this sort,” CM Kejriwal said.
Raising the slogans ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’, ‘Inquilab Zindabad’ and ‘Vande Matram’, the chief minister said, “We need to develop an environment wherein we all and our children constantly feel patriotic at every step we take.
Patriotism has to be a continually evolving feeling within all of us.” Mr Kejriwal said all kinds of professionals are coming up ‘deshbhakt professionals’ are not being developed.
“It doesn’t mean we won’t promote professions. We will continue to support all kinds of education but we will add a touch of patriotic values to them. We will develop ‘deshbhakt‘ doctors, lawyers, engineers, actors, singers, artists, journalists and so on.
