UP CM Yogi: No need to close madrassas; modernise them

LUCKNOW: Chief minister Yogi Adityanath has ruled out closure of madrassas and said that shutting them down was no solution. In his address at the 'Vikas Samanvay Baithak' (Development coordination meeting) of minority affairs ministers from nine states and Union Territories, Yogi said that there was need to modernise madrassas instead of shutting them down.
The meeting was chaired by Union minister for minority affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi.

While elaborating on modernisation of madrassas, in what is being seen as his first minority outreach bid, the chief minister said that mathematicssciencecomputers should be included in curriculum as only modern education can help build good future of students.

"I have been saying this about Sanskrit schools too; that they should modernise as per the current needs," the CM said. "Without good education, students don't get jobs and are prone to get misguided. They are unable to nurture their talent and channelise their energy and fail to contribute to nation building," he said.

'Minorities' high drop-out rate a concern'
