Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Says Govt Schools create Naxals
Odisha government is trying hard to resolve the Italian hostage crisis, spiritual guru and the Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has labeled the government schools as the breeding grounds for the Naxals.
The spiritual guru even advised the government that it should not run any school and should depute the responsibility to some other institution or system.
The rather bold statement made by Sri Sri, who is largely seen as a non-controversial and highly revered figure in the country, is likely to baffle both the Centre and the Odisha government, which is trying hard to end the Italian hostage crisis at the earlist.
His remarks come nearly a week after two Italians - Puri-based tour operator Paolo Bosusco and tourist Claudio Colangelo - were abducted while trekking in Kandhamal district on March 14.
