`The manuals are unfit for young children'

Bangalore: There is no question of the Karnataka Government introducing sex education at the secondary school level, Minister for Primary and Secondary Education Basavaraj S. Horatti has said.

Speaking to presspersons after attending a function organised by Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan and Education Development Centre here on Monday, he said that sex education manuals were "completely unfit" for young children and could not be taught in the name of AIDS control.

Mr. Horatti said he would soon call a meeting of women's organisations and non-governmental organisations involved in AIDS control to discuss the issue.
