Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Monday said the state government will take steps to make the reading of the preamble to the Constitution as part of school and college morning assembly.
The decision has come as a response to the demand by college union leaders to ensure that constitution studies be made an inevitable part of the curriculum at a time when the constitution and its values are under attack, he said.
Vijayan said at the ‘Chief Minister’s student leaders’ conclave, “To create social awareness regarding the importance of protecting the constitution, the state government will take necessary steps to ensure that preamble of the constitution is read out during school college assembly.”
He also said that 50 percent reservation for women representatives in college union elections was also under consideration and sex education will be made part of the education curriculum.
The state is also planning to keep open University libraries 24/7 for students without any restriction for girls, he added.
