AGARTALA, Sept 6 - Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar has alleged that there were efforts to change the country�s secular fabric to create a �Hindu Rashtra�.

�Those who betrayed India�s Independence movement and acted as agents of the then British Government are now active to change the secular fabric of the country and form a Hindu Rastra,� he said at a Teachers� Day function on Tuesday but did not name any organisation or party.

Sarkar said his party (CPI-M) was not against Hindus or Hinduism or any religion.

�The country should be for all people irrespective of religion, caste and creed,� he said, adding that democracy and secularism, which are the mainstays of the country are now under attack.

Sarkar also expressed dismay over education being turned into business enterprises.

�Educational managements are now privatised as a result of which it has turned into a business, which is disastrous for the people,� he said.

Sarkar handed over this year�s Pandit Iswar Chandra Vidyasagar Award, the State Government�s highest award for a teacher to renowned educationist and writer, Aparajita Roy. � PTI
