Sisodia, who was speaking after attending the HRD Ministry's Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) meeting on the New Education Policy (NEP) draft Saturday, questioned the clause which deals with providing autonomy to colleges running under a university.
"Broadly, it is a good draft except a few small things here and there the concepts they have talked about are good. They have set targets that one has to reach rooftop but policy does not talk about step one that how will they reach there," he said.
Under the first phase, 1.4 lakh CCTVs are already being installed by Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL). The government has set November as the deadline for completion of the first phase, worth Rs 571 crore.

The matter resurfaced this month, when the CBSE hiked the fee to Rs 1,200 for SC/ST students and Rs 1,500 for the rest of the students of both grades in these schools.
"Education is as much about software as it is about the hardware. Delhi's government school infrastructure is commendable but today I am very impressed by the work being done on children's mental well being," Sonam Wangchuk said
