Meanwhile,the row over BJP general secretary Ram Madhav questioning Vice President Hamid Ansari's absence at the Yoga Day celebrations escalated today, with Congress accusing the ruling party of playing "divisive" politics and the latter clarifying he was not invited because of protocol issues.
Minister of State for AYUSH Shripad Naik, whose Ministry organised the International Day of Yoga event at Rajpath yesterday, said when Prime Minister is the chief guest at a programme, the President or Vice President cannot be invited as per protocol as the two are above the PM in order of precedence.
"When the Prime Minister is chief guest, then inviting the Vice President is not proper. That's why we did not send the invite to him. President and Vice President are above the Prime Minister as per order of precedence and we cannot invite them accordingly," he said.
Seeking to downplay the controversy, Naik said Madhav has withdrawn his statement and added it may have happened by mistake.
"It may have happened by mistake. It should have been avoided, but we agreed to our mistake," he said.
In the wake of government's clarification on the issue, the Vice President's Office said the matter is closed for them as the Minister's statement "seems logical".
"For us that's the end of the matter," it said.
However, Congress was unsatisfied by the government's clarification and accused BJP of playing "divisive politics" on the International Day of Yoga by targeting Ansari and demanded that Madhav tender an apology.
"The Vice President has been targeted on International Yoga Day. While yoga is all inclusive, BJP has showed its divisive politics by such an action. Ram Madhav should apologise," party spokesperson R P N Singh told reporters.
Suggesting that the Narendra Modi government should not claim undue credit over yoga, Singh also emphasised that the spiritual and physical exercise form has been practised in India from the time immemorial.
"However, I want an assurance from students that they will perform the practicals with full devotion," Irani said at a function in New Delhi today, a day after the International Yoga Day celebration which saw participation of hundreds of school students and teachers.
Later talking to reporters, she said, the states are free to decide on adopting it in their syllabus and to link with their the course curriculum. Officials said CBSE is yet to "devise" a strategy with regards to its implementation in the affiliated schools. The programme would, however, be made mandatory in Kendriya Vidyalayas and the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas.
Talking about the training module on yoga for teacher education programme, she said, the aim is to produce a pool of trained teachers in yoga who meet the upcoming demands.
"We have prepared syllabus for teachers as well. One is diploma in yoga education, bachelors in yoga education and masters in yoga education," Irani said.
National Council of Teacher Education, in its revised notification has made yoga a compulsory training module along with ICT, gender studies and inclusive education.
Irani, on the occasion, also informed that a mobile app will be launched on July 17 where NCERT books from class I to XII can be downloaded free.
A 'Kala Utsav' would also be organised in December at Connaught Place (Central Park) here where ethnic culture, song and dance would be showcased by students from across the country.
The HRD minister was here to attend the two-day National Yoga teacher conference. 500 yoga teachers from across the country including 200 from Delhi government schools are participating in the event which started today.
Mind you,none other than Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia informed that the state Government is currently working on a project in which it will reduce main syllabus by 25 percent and replace it with "most essential subjects of living life" like yoga, music, sports, theatre, etc.
Manish Sisodia said that there is "confusion" amongst all as far education is concerned. Most essential subjects relating to living life are put in extra-curriculum/optional category, while those which one could do without, are part of main syllabus, he stressed.
"If you give me liberty, I will reduce main curriculum by 50 percent. But to begin with, we have set up a team to work on this to reduce main curriculum by 25 percent. If not all schools, we will do it in some schools as a pilot project.
"You reduce 25 percent main curriculum and replace the portion with course of living life…replace it with yoga, sports, music," Sisodia, who is also the state's Education Minister, said.
Manish Sisodia urged Irani to see marks are allotted for such course to ensure students find the subjects important.
"So, it is my request to the Centre, HRD Ministers, we will need your guidance. Let there be marks for the same. Let students see it as this too can be a career opportunity. Let them find it equally important to learning physics, mathematics.
"As far as Centre's yoga syllabus is concerned, we will implement it completely or partially in Delhi schools from this session itself," he said.
Sisodia said that there should be no politics involved when it comes to Yoga and assured Centre that the Delhi Government will extend support required in imbibing the art form in the lives of common people.
"In a country like India, all of us from different segments need to understand yoga. We will have to wipe out these fractions of creeds, politics, and governments. When these will be wiped out only then yoga is possible. This is the first condition of yoga," he said. The Deputy CM further said that images/postures of Gods revered by followers of different religions are forms of asanas in yoga.
Meanwhile,Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati on Sunday accused the BJP of attempting to play the communal card and using yoga for it. She welcomed the celebration of Yoga Day but criticised the BJP for communalising the same.
Addressing a press conference here on Sunday, Ms Mayawati said, "Our party is not against programmes being held on the International Yoga Day on June 21 and we even welcome it but we condemn the manner in which the BJP and its organisations are trying to play the communal card on the occasion."
The BSP president accused the Modi government of starting new "controversial" traditions but did not elaborate on what she meant. "Instead of following democratic traditions, the government has started new controversial traditions that reflect its distorted mentality," she said.
Ms Mayawati said that the members of the Modi government were raking up the Ram temple issue which is still pending in the court.
She also attacked the state government and said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav were competing with each other on foreign trips.
"Both the leaders are not concerned about issues concerning the common man and are busy promoting their own self interests. The policies of the Modi government are not benefiting the poor and weaker sections of society but are designed only for the rich and super rich," she said.
Replying to a question, Ms Mayawati said that the centre was giving step motherly treatment to non-BJP state governments and adequate financial assistance was not being given to such states.
