He said that all the students, irrespective of secular and caste, were being given equal education on the basis of equality in the government schools of Punjab under which the names of government schools could not be related to class or caste.

The Education Minister said that Punjab is the land of gurus, saints and great prophets who have taught humanity to stay away from casteism and all kinds of discrimination.

He said that in today's era, these names have a profound effect on the tender minds of the students and sometimes many parents also refrain from enrolling their children in government schools because of these names.
