New education policy is against the spirit of the constitution

Employment News- RJD's Rajya Sabha MP Manoj Jha has given a big statement regarding the new education policy on Tuesday. Rajya Sabha member Jha said that the National Education Policy 2020 is against the spirit of the Constitution. He alleged that this is a conscious effort to stop the democratization of education.

Manoj Jha was addressing the 'Student Parliament' organized at Delhi's Jantar Mantar on Tuesday. The Student Parliament was organized by AISA. AISA said that students from 25 universities across 15 states have participated in the meeting demanding the withdrawal of the new National Education Policy 2020.
There was no discussion on the National Education Policy in Parliament
Addressing the students, Rajya Sabha member Jha alleged that there was no discussion on the policy in Parliament. The RJD MP said that the document has not been presented in Parliament. Raising the question, he asked, is this not dishonest in itself? There has been no discussion on the new National Education Policy. The MP said that when we tried to raise the matter during Zero Hour, it was not accepted, and we were told that it is a policy decision and there is no need for discussion.
Education policy against the interests of the lower and middle classes
He alleged that the new National Education Policy is against the interests of not only the lower class but also the middle class. Jha said that we can say here in solidarity that a conscious effort has been made to stop the further progress of democratization of education. Jha alleged that there is no mention of social justice and affirmative action in the new education policy. He said that this is against the spirit and preamble of the Constitution. The document has done away with the distinction between scholarship and loan.
It will help the coaching industry to flourish
CPI(ML) general secretary Dipankar Bhattacharya alleged that the new policy would only help the coaching industry flourish. He said this would lead to privatization, centralization and saffronisation of education. Addressing the gathering, Professor Ratan Lal of Hindu College said that the education policy will affect both students and teachers. He said that due to this policy, professors will also suffer. We all should fight for it. We must stand together to oppose this policy.
