Tharu reacted to DU professor Mark Jihad’s statement against Kerala education

On Thursday, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor termed the Delhi University professor’s ‘Mark Jihad’ statement against the Kerala School Board as ‘ridiculous’.

This anti-Kerala bias should end now! “, Thiruvananthapuram MP tweeted.

Percentage marks in 11th class.” Pandey called it “Marxist jihad.”
