Life of dalit icons to be part of school syllabus in Telangana

Education NewsSpeaking at a function held at Ravindra Bharati on Tuesday, Mr Chandrasekhar Rao said, “We will incorporate the life history of the firebrand political leader Eashwari Bai in the school curriculum along with all Dalit icons of the state,” he said.

Retired IAS official P.S. Krishnan was awarded the Eashwari Bai Memorial Award for this year on Saturday. Mr Krishnan, who worked relentlessly to uplift the marginalized and impoverished Dalits, also lauded the government. “Some of the schemes initiated by the government like offering three acres land to Dalits are praiseworthy,” he said.

The CM responded by saying a modest start had been made and the state government would get even more ambitious in the future. Eashwari Bai’s daughter, former minister J. Geeta Reddy said about her mother, “She was a firebrand leader who who wanted to be the people’s voice. She proposed free education for girls”.
