<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister, Prakash Javadekar told DNA, that the ministry is going to take approval from Niti Aayog, before bringing out the final draft of the new education policy. Javadekar added that he will be holding a workshop with all the Members of Parliament cutting across party lines. “We will hold a workshop of all the MPs on November 10 to discuss education related issues and suggestions received. I welcome everyone who has an expertise in the field,” said Javadekar.The idea of holding a workshop with the MPs was originally suggested by Jairam Ramesh during the last discussion on Education Policy, which lasted for about three hours. It was suggested that since everyone has a lot to contribute in the issue, the duration of discussion should be longer. The ministry is also in touch with Niti Aayog for discussions on the policy. “We are in touch with Niti Aayog and will take a final decision on the education policy only after analysing all the aspects,” Javadekar added.The new education policy,which is aimed at bringing changes in the structure of education in the country from primary to higher education was initiated in the tenure of the previous HRD Minister, Smriti Irani. It however, came under controversy after a number of suggestions made by RSS’s education unit were found to be regressive by educationists. Javadekar, after assuming the charge of education minister started a discussion on the policy once again. The last date of submitting the suggestions was September 30.
