Backing the education system that promotes a career in sports and politics, Union HRD Minister, Smriti Irani dismissed the charge that the education should be safforonised under the present Government. The minister is in the support of promoting religious harmony among all and has also supported the views of a student that the education system should promote a career in sports and politics.
