Education Minister Postpones Campaign On New Education Policy
After the death of former President Pranab Mukherjee, Education Minister has delayed his campaign on New National Education Policy.
Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ previously said that he will answer questions related to the newly introduced National Education Policy, or NEP 2020, today i.e. September 1, 2020. But after the death of former President Pranab Mukherjee, Education Minister has delayed his campaign on New National Education Policy.
“Due to the demise of former President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee, we have decided to postpone our campaign on #NEP2020, where Hon'ble Education @DrRPNishank was supposed to answer queries on #NEP, the Education Ministry said on social media.
New date and time of the question-answer session will be announced later, the ministry said.
Questions related to the new education policy can be sent to the minister using #NEPTransformingIndia.
“I and the ministry will be dedicating one full day to address your concerns. Looking forward to your queries,” Mr Pokhriyal previously said.
Though the Education Minister has requested for queries relating to the New Education policy, or NAP 2020, students have instead asked for a postponement of NEET and JEE.
The Supreme Court on August 17 upheld the decision of the National Testing Agency, or NTA, to conduct JEE Main and NEET 2020 in September.
Since then, students have been responding to Mr Pokhriyal’s social media posts with Postpone JEE and Postpone NEET messages.
