Chief Development Officer TK Shibu said that there is nothing wrong in putting up these tiles at public places to keep check on the spitting menace.

“In the High Court too, such tiles have been fixed…we got the CCTV cameras installed and also deployed staff to check spitting, but it was of no use, and as an experiment we got these tiles of gods and goddess,” he said.

However, the decision has not gone down well with certain local stuff and they are protesting against the decision.

Niswarth Seva Samiti handed over a memorandum to Shibu and warned of an agitation if the tiles are not removed from the state government establishments in 24 hours.

Similarly, social activist Salman gave a memorandum to the District Magistrate Karan Singh Chauhan, saying it is improper to use pictures of gods for such purposes.

It is to be seen whether the court will support the decision or not.

The Yogi Adityanath Government has ordered all the madarsas across the states to take the classes in Hindi and English medium and not in Urdu. The decision came after the recommendations of the Arbi-Farsi Urdu Madarsa Board.

Madarsas have been at the forefront of criticism over the curriculum of their teachings. They are schools for Islamic instruction which deprives the students of the career-driven subjects like Mathematics, Science, English and Social Science. The government has also ordered to introduce all these subjects in the curriculum.
