AAP leaders flay govt, demand rectification 

Chandigarh: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday criticised the state government for deleting 23 chapters related to the Sikh Gurus and important events in Sikh history from the class XII history book of the Punjab School Education Board.AAP termed the move as disrespect to the Sikh Gurus and asked the government to correct its mistake without delay.In a joint press statement, AAP MLAs Kultar Singh Sandhwan, Saravjit Kaur Manuke, Pirmal Singh Khalsa, Jagdev Singh Kamalu and others said that the move of the PSEB to remove the chapters related to the history of the Sikh Gurus and their teachings, Anglo-Sikh Wars, Baba Banda Singh Bahadur, the rule of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, the Sikh struggle against the Mughals and Ahmad Shah Abdali and the origin and growth of Sikh misls will isolate the youth of Punjab from glorious past of Sikhism in particular and Punjab as a whole.“The government’s plea on the issue that certain chapters from last year’s syllabus have been deleted to bring the syllabus on a par with the NCERT is a mere excuse and cannot be accepted,” AAP said.In a separate press release, Aam Aadmi Party MLA from Sunam Aman Arora questioned the “casual attitude” of the state government in tackling the drug menace in the state.He said that the Punjab state board for de-addiction and rehabilitation was constituted by the government in June 2014, but nothing much has been done by the board till now. Arora said that as per the reply of the Health Minister to his question in the Punjab Vidhan Sabha, only four meetings of the body have been held so far.
