Puducherry, Aug 25 (UNI) Federation for Peoples Rights (FPR) here on Sunday urged Chief Minister V Narayanasamy to adopt a resolution opposing the new Educational policy in the budget session of the territorial assembly beginning here on Monday.

FPR Secretary G Sugumaran in a statement said, the central government released a draft educational policy 2019 and sought the views of the public.
Several political parties, organizations and educationists expressed their views opposing the draft policy.

He said, with the new educational policy, the central government will bring education fully under its control and the state governments will lose their rights.This will lead to a total commercialization of education, he pointed out.
Mr Sugumaran said there was a widespread demand in Puducherry that the central government should withdraw the new educational policy.

In Puducherry, Chief Minister is opposing 10 percent reservation for EWS only after its implementation, Mr Sugumaran said, adding that after announcing in the cabinet meeting that that it would be implemented only after a survey on EWS in the Union territory, all on a sudden it was implemented here.
The Chief Minister should take steps to adopt a resolution opposing the educational policy in the budget session, he added.
