The Karnataka cabinet has taken a significant decision on Thursday, mandating that all schools and colleges, including government, aided, and private institutions, read the Preamble of the Constitution on a daily basis.
Furthermore, the cabinet has also made it compulsory for all the government and semi-government offices within the state to display a portrait of the Constitution’s Preamble.
“Keeping in mind the freedom struggle, the idea behind writing of the Constitution, the people, especially the youth at schools, colleges and universities — whether it is government, aided or private — should compulsorily read the Preamble of the Constitution,” Social Welfare Minister H C Mahadevappa said.
Addressing the reporters in Bengaluru following the Cabinet meeting, the minister emphasized that this measure would effectively inspire young individuals to actively contribute to nation-building and promote unity among diverse communities.
Additionally, the new government has approved the inclusion of chapters dedicated to Savitribai Phule, Jawaharlal Nehru’s letters to Indira Gandhi, and poetry on Dr. BR Ambedkar. This decision reflects a firm determination to reverse the modifications introduced by the previous BJP government.
