new education policy

New Delhi: The new education policy which is under consideration will be cooperative federalist in spirit. Union Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani on Friday said while addressing a session at ‘Agenda Aaj Tak’.

The process of consultation on new education policy has followed the spirit of cooperative federalism,

The minister said ‘No detention’ policy in schools was also being discussed as it has its own “challenges”.

Asked about the introduction of the Bhagavad Gita in schools, Irani remarked that she teaches her kids the Gita herself and does not rely upon the schools for it.

The first school for kids is their home with parents as teachers. It’s not fair to say only school has a role in (a) child’s development,

Responding to a question on many writers and leaders pointing to a rising “intolerance” in the country, she said the individuals returning awards never did the same when they were instances of violence when Congress was in power. (IANS)

The aim to end the hegemoney of international companies on the Indian economy, he said.

“Our imports consist of over Rs 25 lakh crore while another Rs 25 lakh crore is taken away by foreign companies. If we need to break this hegemoney and our dependence on foreign companies, we need in house prodcution of at least Rs.100 lakh crore. Our endeavour is to create and promote Indian entreprenurship,” said Ramdev.

While hailing the Narendra Modi government’s move to demonetise higher denomination notes, Ramdev said it was essential to continue taking further steps to check and prevent corruption and black money.

“Demonetisation has broken the back of terrorism and Naxalism (Maoism) as their entire funding was in black money. This move will effectively address the issue of black money. However, the government should continue to take further steps to ensure black money does not make a comeback to the system,” he said.
