NEP 2020 lays great emphasis on Indian languages, knowledge systems: Dharmendra Pradhan



The National Education Policy (NEP) is “rooted in Indianness and emphasises on learning in the mother tongue”, Pradhan said at the 36th convocation of SASTRA Deemed University. The NEP 2020 announced by the Centre lays great emphasis on Indian languages and Indian knowledge systems, Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said.

“An icon like Saint Thiruvalluvar is no less than any other literary figure, scholar or philosopher. It is our duty to take Thiruvalluvar’s philosophy and Indian Knowledge Systems to the globe,” he tweeted.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has time and again reinforced that all Indian languages including Tamil are national languages, Pradhan said. He further highlighted, “The policy with its futuristic outlook and rootedness in Indian ethos and with its emphasis on Indian languages is a philosophical document to create global citizens.”
