National Education Policy 2020 | Won’t impose any language, Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank tweets in Tamil

Mr. Nishank’s clarification, through a tweet in Tamil, comes in the backdrop of opposition to NEP in Tamil Nadu on the grounds that the policy allegedly imposed Hindi and Sanskrit

The Centre will not impose any language on any State through the new National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, Union Minister for Education Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank said on Sunday.

Mr. Nishank’s clarification, through a tweet in Tamil, comes in the backdrop of opposition to NEP in Tamil Nadu on the grounds that the policy allegedly imposed Hindi and Sanskrit.

பொன் ராதாகிருஷ்ணன் ஜி, தமிழ்நாட்டில் தேசிய கல்விக் கொள்கை (NEP)-ஐ நடைமுறைப்படுத்துவதற்கான உங்கள் வழிகாட்டலை எதிர்பார்க்கிறோம். மத்திய அரசு, எந்தவொரு மாநிலத்தின் மீதும் எந்த மொழியையும் திணிக்காது என்பதை மீண்டும் வலியுறுத்த விரும்புகிறேன். https://t.co/YtiRZXtCpf

In his tweet to former Union Minister from the State Pon Radhakrishnan, Mr. Nishank said he was looking forward to the guidance of the ex-central minister in implementing NEP in Tamil Nadu.

“I once again like to insist that the Central government will not impose any language on any state,” he said.

The M.K. Stalin-led DMK and many opposition parties in Tamil Nadu have opposed NEP and want a review of the sweeping reforms it has proposed.

On Saturday, the DMK chief said the policy was an attempt at alleged imposition of Hindi and Sanskrit and vowed to fight against it by joining hands with like-minded political parties and Chief Ministers of other states.

The reforms were not a new education policy but “a glossy coat on the old oppressive Manusmriti,” he said.
