NEW DELHI: BJP members in the Lok Sabha today made a strong plea for declaring Bhagwad Gita as 'National book".

The issue was raised during zero hour by Yogi Adityanath (BJP), who said the teachings of the Gita have become all the more relevant at a time when the world is concerned over 'jehadi' terrorism.

Noting that the scripture teaches immortal values and is a guide to humanity, he hailed the Bhagvad Gita Mahotsave held at Kurukhshetra recently.

He also wanted that learning of Bhagvad Gita be made part of school curriculum.

His plea was supported by a large number of his party colleagues with thumping of desks.
