AJMER: Allergic to the Maharana Pratap controversy, the Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education (RBSE) has formed a committee to reassess the objectionable e-content published to the RBSE net portal site and alleged claims of downsizing the material on Pratap’s lifetime by 40percent in the revised published textbook when compared with one revised from the BJP tenure.
At a media conference held in Ajmer on Friday, RBSE chairman, D Jalori asserted it has not diluted the glory, valour and humanist side of Rajasthan’s pub Pratap, however, has underlined and emphasized the multifold facet of the Maharana from the revised textbook. A significant controversy unfolded following an objectionable announcement on Pratap because’a king that lacked moderation, patience and control’ appeared from the course 10 Social Science e-textbook. The date once the publication was uploaded isn’t known, but the publication was eliminated on June 25 in the site after the thing snowballed into a political matter.
Jalori contended that the present publication was inserted from the academic session of 2019-20 or past year. “The publication has been set up for a bit more than a year and no one objected to the articles,” explained Jalori, who further advised that by the new academic session, NCERT syllabus and publications will be released in category 9 and 11 leaving no scope for any confusion. Earlier, speaking to TOI about the objectionable content, he also said the board will research the issue and whether the material is objectionable, they’ll remove it.
State education minister Govind Singh Dotasra has held RBSE accountable for publishing the objectionable content on the board web portal. Before, he’d told TOI that the material on e-textbook was distinct from the published version which seems to be a mischief from the worried author.
