All opinions important to shape national education policy: Smriti Irani

Agartala: Union Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani has said to create national education policy. A joint effort has been introduced from the national to the grassroots level to obtain opinions.

“This is for the first time citizens of India at large from national to grassroots level would give their opinions in preparing the national education policy. The draft of the policy would be ready by December,” Irani told reporters on Friday night after meeting Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar.
