While speaking at the Gujarat government’s Mission Schools of Excellence initiative at Adalaj town in Gandhinagar, PM Modi stated there was a time when English was the measurement of an individual’s intellectual capacity. But it is a medium of communication and nothing else.

During his speech, PM Modi also asked that those who are more comfortable in Hindi and not in English not be left behind.

“The English language barrier was a hurdle. Several students who live in rural areas have limited knowledge of English, are not able to pursue careers in medicine and engineering, he said.

The prime minister further promised that the New Education Policy (NEP) would free the nation from its “slave mindset” toward the English language.

Even if they are not educated in English medium, we want to make sure that children from low-income families become doctors and engineers. The New Education Policy of the Center will free the nation from this slave mindset surrounding the English language, said Modi. He further added that “we want to ensure that no one is left behind due to a lack of the English language.”

The recently launched 5G communication services in the nation would advance the country’s educational system. “The 5G service will go beyond intelligent buildings, intelligent classrooms, and intelligent teaching. Our education system will reach the next level as a result of it, as said by PM Modi.

The Prime Minister spoke in favour of regional languages. Two days prior, Union Home Minister Amit Shah released three textbooks in Hindi for MBBS students. It is an ambitious programme by the Madhya Pradesh government to provide medical education in the Hindi language to students.
