Agartala, June 9: Tripura’s Chief Minister, Prof. Dr. Manik Saha on Friday said that the implementation of the ‘National Education Policy’ (NEP) would bring a revolutionary transformation in India’s education system and emphasized the policy’s potential to restore India’s rich cultural heritage, thereby attracting students from foreign nations to pursue their studies in the country.
The Chief Minister ceremonially inaugurated the implementation of the National Education Policy in Tripura at Agartala Town Hall earlier today.
Highlighting the educational progress in the state, he proudly mentioned the presence of numerous universities, including the upcoming Buddha University, and the establishment of a private university in the North district.
“With specialized institutions such as a skill university, law university, Sanskrit university, and forensic university, Tripura is gradually emerging as an education hub”, said CM.
The Chief Minister underlined Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of empowering knowledgeable individuals to lead the nation, emphasizing the pivotal role of knowledge in achieving success.
Regarding the National Education Policy, CM Dr. Saha revealed the inclusion of a new provision specifically focused on promoting India’s art, culture, and traditions.
CM Dr. Saha highlighted the difficulties faced by Tripura students in the past, as they had to adapt to a distinct set of education guidelines that posed challenges when transitioning to the national level.
“However, due to the National Education Policy, the education system across the country will be standardized, ensuring that students do not face any issues. We now take pride in our children studying in the USA and other countries. Nonetheless, there was a time when the entire world used to come to India to study at renowned institutions like Nalanda and Takshila. The National Education Policy aims to rekindle that tradition and restore our country’s cultural legacy, thereby attracting students from foreign nations to pursue their studies here,” added the CM.
