Pune/Hyderabad, Aug 20 (Hydnow): Reacting to a recent CBSE circular to schools on the issue of the Partition of India, the NCP chief Sharad Pawar said “I am worried about a circular issued by the CBSE (The Central Board of Secondary Education controlled and managed by the Union government) recently that asked its schools to inform students about the situation which erupted during Partition,”

He said that it would be incorrect to pass on the thoughts of strife that erupted during Partition to the younger generation with respect to national and social unity. Pawar was speaking at the inauguration of a school in the presence of senior Congress leader Sushil Kumar Shinde and State Minister and BJP leader Chandrakant Patil.

He said, “The history of Partition is the history of the country’s division amid bloodshed. Thousands of people were displaced. Many from the Sindhi community had to migrate to India. a similar situation was in Punjab. Many Muslims left for Pakistan, ” he said. though the Maharashtra government has no role to play in the circular, it must express its view to CBSE. “With respect to national and social unity, it is incorrect to imbibe such thoughts (Partition violence) on the young generation. The state government must ensure no subject creates conflict in society, Pawar asserted.
