EDMC plans to introduce book on freedom fighters, Kargil war heroes for Class V students
The BJP-led East Delhi Municipal Corporation has planned to introduce a book on Indian freedom fighters and Kargil war heroes to students of class V in its schools to infuse a ''sense of patriotism'' among them at an early age, its mayor Shyam Sunder Aggarwal said on Thursday.
''This book, we have planned to introduce as part of the 'Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav' which marks 75th year of India's Independence. Only about 100 copies have been published as now, as we will do bulk production only after getting due approval of the House, as we will need budget for that too,'' Aggarwal said.
''If we introduce our (EDMC schools') class V student the stories of bravery and valour of these freedom fighters and war heroes, it will inject a sense of patriotism in the students at an early age,'' the mayor said.
