NEW DELHI: Union minister of state (independent charge) science and technology Jitendra Singh said the country’s education system offers a fusion of traditional knowledge and latest world-class technology, which provides India an advantage to lead the world.

He added that projects such as Chandrayaan 3, Aditya L1, world’s first ‘made in India’ DNA vaccine and others exhibit this advantage. He was addressing an education programme at Bharatiya Vidya Mandir Senior Secondary School, Dadwara (Phinter), near Billawar, in Kathua district, Jammu and Kashmir.

While addressing the students, Singh said, “The National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 has opened up new vistas for the youth of this country, which is no longer the prisoner of aspiration but has aspirations in abundance and avenues in tons, with numerous opportunities knocking at their doors.”

Singh said, “India is now ahead of the best developed economies of the world under PM Narendra Modi, that was unimagined a decade before. The world now wants India to lead them in almost every sphere. The success of G20, accepting the proposal of declaring 2023 as the International Year of Millets, International Yoga Day becoming a global phenomenon etc. shows the prowess of India under the present government, Jitendra Singh added.
