Kendriya Vidyalayas are Pride of Country, says Ramesh Pokhriyal
The Union Minister said constant efforts are being made to increase the number of students in these schools.
Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank' on Thursday said the Kendriya Vidyalayas are the pride of the country. After digitally inaugurating the new building of Kendriya Vidyalaya No-3 in Haryana’s Faridabad, the minister said these schools impart discipline and moral values to the children.
Union Education Minister:
Speaking on the occasion, the Union Education minister said, "Today the buildings of four central schools in the country are being inaugurated simultaneously”.
Two of these are in Odisha, one in Rajasthan and one in Faridabad district of Haryana, he said, according to a Haryana government statement issued here.
The Union Minister further said constant efforts are being made to increase the number of students in these schools.
The minister, according to the statement, said the school building which has been dedicated to the people of Faridabad was being demanded since the year 2003-04.
Education In Mother Tongue:
Earlier, Mr. Pokhriyal had said people should not think English alone would help in progress. As several countries in the world have achieved greater heights by imparting education in their mother tongue.
Speaking after e-inauguration of the new building of Kendriya Hindi Sansthan, Mr Pokhriyal, however, said he was not against English and cited the examples of Japan, Germany, France and others which impart education in their mother tongue.
He referred to the new education policy and said students were free to choose any subject of their choice. While language would not be forced on anybody. Every state would be requested to impart education in their respective state language, Mr Ramesh Pokhriyal said.
