“NITs in northeast states must sit together at the earliest to undertake some collaborative schemes for the all-round development of these national institutes,” she said.

She proposed the idea of a website to be created by January next year and over 90,000 e-books and 10,000 journals to be made available.

“NIT authorities must get the experience and idea from the students too,” she said, adding that the central government has launched various projects for the development of higher education in the country.

The HRD minister accompanied by her ministry’s senior officials arrived in Agartala on Friday to hold a meeting with the education ministers. The union minister asked the education ministers to submit their government’s views in writing on the proposed national education policy.

“The central government will obtain views from the Gram Panchayats to national level and also from the academicians and all stakeholders about the proposed education policy,” Irani said at the meeting.

Tripura Education Minister Tapan Chakraborty said Friday’s meeting was held as the follow up meeting of the 63rd meeting of the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) that was held in New Delhi on August 19 and told the reporters that in the CABE meeting, most northeast states wanted to remove the ‘no-detention policy’ at the elementary school level (up to class 8).

The minister said that the Left Front government strongly supported the plan for a new education policy, a process initiated by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance government.

Union Minister of Women and Child Development Smriti Irani has given a shout-out to Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu’s upcoming film “Thappad” and said that it is not ok to hit a woman not even one slap.

Irani on Sunday took to Instagram, where she shared the trailer of the film, directed by Anubhav Sinha.

The politician wrote alongside the video: “How many have heard “aurat ko hi adjust karna padta hai…” How many think “ki maar pitai sirf gareeb auraton ke hi pati karte hai…” How many believe “ki educated aadmi kabhi haath nahi uthata…” How many tell their girls their daughter in laws “koi baat nahi beta aisa to humare saath bhi hua lekin dekho aaj kitne khush hai…”

“I might not support the political ideology of the director or may disagree with some actors on some issues but this is a story that I will definitely watch and hope people watch it with their families. It’s not ok to hit a woman… not even a slap… not even JUST one slap.”

“Thappad” takes a serious look at the issue of domestic violence, with particular focus on how violent behaviour is ground for divorce, irrespective of the number of times it happens. Simply put, even if it is just one slap, it counts as domestic violence.
