It is worth mentioning that earlier in his speech given from the ramparts of Red Fort on August 15, Prime Minister Modi had said important things about education in the country. He also mentioned the new National Education Policy in his speech. The Prime Minister has been constantly talking about giving importance to the language, especially the local languages, in the field of education. In his speech on 15th August also he told that the new education policy is breaking the barriers of language.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his speech from the Red Fort, had said, "The way the new education policy has been made. The churning with which it is made has been made by compiling the flow of ideas of people and from the soil of India's soil. A linked education policy has been made. The skill we have emphasized is such an ability that will give us the power to free ourselves from slavery. We have seen that sometimes our talent gets tied in the shackles of language. This is the result of the slavery mentality. We should be proud of every language of our country."
Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has also praised the new National Education Policy. Under the new education policy, engineering course material in Indian languages is being made accessible by the Union Ministry of Education. For this, technical book writing and translation have been started in 12 scheduled Indian languages Hindi, Marathi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati, Kannada, Punjabi, Odia, Assamese, Urdu and Malayalam.
