NEP based on teachings of Mahatma Gandhi, other Indian visionaries: Amit Shah



Union Home Minister Amit Shah hailed the central government’s New Education Policy for its emphasis on learning in mother tongue and universal education based on the teachings of Indian visionaries such as Mahatma Gandhi and Dayanand Saraswati.

While addressing the 113th convocation of the Gurukula Kangri, Shah said that India’s education system freed from the stranglehold of the British and revived the country’s vedic education system, all the while emphasising on culture and modern education.

Further, he praised the new National Education Policy brought by the Narendra Modi-led central government saying it represents the combined visions of Maharshi Dayanand Saraswati, Swami Shraddhanand, Mahatma Gandhi, and Lala Lajpat Rai.
