Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Wednesday that the new national education policy is futuristic and meets global standards.
“India is proud to be the mother of democracy because its values are ingrained in our social life,” Modi said via video conference at the 95th Annual Meeting of the Association of Indian Universities and a National University Seminar of India.
Last year, the center presented the New National Education Policy (NEP).
“National education policy is futuristic and matches global parameters,” Modi said.
He said that the role of trained youth will steadily increase as India embarks on the path of Aatmanirbharta (self-reliance).
“Babasaheb Ambedkar has given us a solid foundation to promote all of our post-independence democratic values,” Modi said on the occasion of Dr. Ambedkar.
The Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Open University hosted the event. Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’, Gujarat Governor Acharya Devvrat and Prime Minister Vijay Rupani attended the meeting.
The seminar aims to develop effective implementation strategies for the recently launched National Education Policy 2020. NEP must be implemented in a way that benefits its main stakeholders, the students.
The annual meeting will also commemorate the 95th anniversary of the IAU, which took place in 1925 under the auspices of stalwarts such as Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan and Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee. The 95th Annual Meeting is the occasion for AIU to present its achievements from the past year. This two-day celebration will help the IAU to present its annual accounts and establish the calendar of activities for the coming year.
