New Education Policy encourages privatisation & commercialisation, is an attack on fundamental right to equal opportunity: Hemant Soren

New Education Policy encourages privatisation & commercialisation, is an attack on fundamental right to equal opportunity: Hemant Soren

Ranchi, Sep 7 (UNI) Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren today said that since education is a subject of concurrent list therefore open discussions should have been held with all the states before framing the new education policy so it does not appear to be forced upon any state.
Participating in a video conferencing with President Ramnath Kovind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank over new education policy 2020, he said there was lack of transparency and suggestions in framing the policy. He said when the policy is ready then the central government was holding discussion over it but it would have been more better if discussion would have taken place earlier so the states could have played a more active role in making the policy.
"For the last sometime whether it was the decision of privatisation of PSUs, commercial mining and GST in all these decisions the central government has taken unilateral decision and lack of consultation in framing the new education policy seems an attack on the cooperative federalism structure of the country," he said.
