In the 2019 budget, the Rajasthan government had mentioned in 118 that about Tk 6 crore has been allocated for the 'Chief Minister's Madrasa Development Project'. Earlier, the Maharashtra government had allocated salaries for madrasa teachers.
Controversial remarks by a Congress leader
Congress leader Udit Raj made a controversial remark in Assam Education Minister Himanta Bishwa Sharma's comment on the closure of madrassas. He compared the Kumbh Mela to a madrasa and wrote in a tweet, “If the Assam government stops teaching Koran in madrasas with government funds, then the Uttar Pradesh government should not spend Rs 4,200 crore for the Kumbh Mela.”
The Congress leader sang the opposite
The Congress leader's tweet on Thursday sparked criticism in the political arena. “There is no religion in the state,” he said in an interview with a TV channel. Everyone should be treated equally. No one should be discriminated against. So I mentioned Kumbh Mela as an example.
