While addressing students after a school-level competition on Sanskrit language, Sisodia said, “We don’t want a particular section but 100 per cent children to get a good education and this will help in building the nation and I want that in building the nation, there should be a role of Sanskrit as well.”
He also asked students to learn Sanskrit language not just for passing the exams but also to understand so many beautiful things that were said in the language.
