Having drawn fire from Opposition MPs over purported “communalisation” of education policy during the Monsoon Session of Parliament, the NDA government will organise an “Education Dialogue” with MPs to address their concerns regarding the draft education policy.
The daylong dialogue will be organised on November 10 in the Main Hall of Parliament Annexe, HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar has said in a letter to all MPs.
“I had promised in Rajya Sabha to hold an Education Dialogue for suggestions from MPs before the Winter Session. I have already made available two documents i.e. HRD Committee Report and some inputs for the Draft Education Policy. Both the documents have also been placed on the table of the House and I hope you have been able to go through the documents,” Javadekar wrote in the letter inviting MPs for the dialogue.
A document titled, “Some Inputs for Draft National Education Policy 2016”, that had been uploaded on the website of the HRD Ministry had invited stringent criticism from the Opposition in the Upper House. The Opposition had alleged that the document had the imprint of the RSS and would imperil the basis of the education system in the country as “no education system in the world has ever survived the infusion of ideology.”
The document, opposition MPs had alleged, had been lifted from an RSS document presented at Amarkantak.

In his reply, Javadekar had said it was not a final draft and just a set of inputs the government had received.
The draft inputs lay stress on education in the mother tongue, local or regional languages up to Class V and the inclusion of Indian culture, local and traditional knowledge in the curriculum, not just at the primary level but also in higher education institutions.
