For the past few days, there have been continuous ups and downs in the political organization, where every day there is a debate about something new. And with this uproar, a lot of rebellions are also seen in the political party. Recently, DMK President M K Stalin requested the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to give up on his plans to assemble a Governors’ conference and review the new National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 along with the President Ram Nath Kovind and the Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank.’
Since the Lok Sabha would soon discuss the policy, holding the discussion with the Centre’s deputies in the States would blunt power, Stalin was quoted giving a statement on Saturday. When the Centre did not discuss the NEP, prior to its release, with the Central Advisory Board of Education, in which State Ministers would be a part, discussing it with governors would amount to denigrating the States and undermine the powers of the Lok Sabha, he said.
Pointing out that the committee constituted by the State government under the Principal Secretary for Education was an eyewash as it comprised two former Vice-chancellors and four present Vice-chancellors, Stalin called up the government to include representatives of parents and students, besides educationalists and activists who had been shining the light on the dark side of NEP.
