Kapil Sibal
New Delhi, Mar 21: HRD and Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal lashed out at spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's remarks over the government schools.

"Sorry to hear his comments and this is not true. I studied in a government school and I am not a Naxalite," Sibal said.

Amidst the ongoing hostage crisis, Ravi Shankar commented that the government schools were a breeding ground for Naxals.

"It's often seen that boys from government schools are into Naxalism and violence. Those from the private education system are not into these things. They move ahead with an ideal (adarsh) and teachers are responsible for it," he said.

On Saturday, Mar 17, the two Italian tourists were reportedly abducted by maoists near the Kandhamal-Ganjam border in Orissa as claimed in reports.
