Ahmedabad: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said the new National Education Policy is futuristic and as per global standards.

“India takes pride in being the mother of democracy as it’s values are embodied in our social life,” Modi said addressing the Association of Indian Universities’ 95th annual meet and a national seminar of vice-chancellors via video conference.

The Centre unveiled the new National Education Policy (NEP) last year.

“The National Education Policy is futuristic and as per global parameters,” Modi said.

He said the role of skilled youth is continuously increasing as India walks the path of ‘aatmanirbharta’ (self- reliance).

“Babasaheb Ambedkar has given a strong foundation for us to take forward all our democratic values after the independence,” Modi said on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Dr Ambedkar.

The city-based Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Open University hosted the event.

Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’, Gujarat Governor Acharya Devvrat and Chief Minister Vijay Rupani attended the meet.

  1. THE PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA
    In my fathers family in the village, a school clerk is in the business of marketing fake diploma, degree including the degree of a medical doctor, the price range from Rs.500 to 5000. In the same family as my father, his youngest brother totally illiterate sells his false affidavit to be used in the courts, this man is a farmer and he hoodwinked PM Modi for Awas grant. His son is a Tantrik Vidya experts and closely linked with the Subordinate Court and for a bribe, he can drag the cases forever. Honourable Modi must look after the rising heinous crimes, atrocities and crimes against humanity which has doomed India. India has a brain dead in the public administration with IAS, IPS and PCS fake qualification who are unfit for the job. Most of the people in India believe ” might is right”. The future of the Indian children is empty, the Prime Minister must pay attention to establishing law and order.
    With gratitude
