Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh is of the opinion that Vedas are the “first source of all kinds of science”.
Speaking at a “Veda and Vedic Culture meet” in a Gurukul of Mahasamund district on Friday, Singh said: “Vedas are the first source of all kinds of knowledge and science in the world. The knowledge ingrained in Vedas cleared the darkness of ignorance that had enveloped the world. Our Vedic literature contains a treasure of knowledge.”
Singh has thus joined a bevy of BJP leaders who have recently eulogized the ancient Indian culture saying it was the lone source of all knowledge and science.
Speaking at the occasion, Panchayat Minister Ajay Chandrakar said that several cultures have been destroyed in the course of time but “our eternal culture has sustained itself.”
“Our Sanatan Dharma has always moved ahead. India was a Vishwa Guru in ancient times, we can regain that status through Veda and Vaidic culture,” Chandrakar said.
Last week, another BJP minister Brijmohan Agrawal had said that Brahmins have been the sole custodian of Indian values and carry the responsibility of upholding the tradition.
