About the policy, he said that “The NEP is a unifying factor in stimulating Indian knowledge systems, regional languages, art & culture and in celebrating our diversity and strengths as a civilisation.”
Pradhan said that Assam is going to be a laboratory of mother tongue-based education in the country. “The diversity of languages cannot be witnessed better than in our NE region with about 180 languages being spoken by tribes residing here. The NEP has amplified the potential of language in education.”
The education minister further said that he is glad that Sarma has prioritised key areas, such as education and health and has significantly enhanced the share of government expenditure (6% of GDP) on education.
“Guided by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision, we are charting a roadmap for creating Special Education Zones to bring about educational equity in the country. The immense potential of Guwahati can be harnessed to make it an educational hub for the north-east and the country,” Dharmendra Pradhan added.
