South India

Congress leader Khushbu Sundar has expressed support for the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020.


The famous actress also said that her stand is different from that of the party and she has made her remarks as a citizen.

"My stand on #NEP2020 differs from my party and I apologise to @RahulGandhi Ji for that, but I rather speak the fact than be a head-nodding robot or a puppet. Everything is and cannot be about agreeing to your leader, but about being courageous to voice your opinion bravely as a citizen," Khushbu tweeted.

She had earlier expressed support for NEP by tweeting, "#NewEducationPolicy2020 A welcome move."

On Wednesday, the Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi approved the NEP 2020.

It says that no language will be imposed on any student and several foreign languages will also be offered at the secondary level.

The major reforms in school education brought by NEP 2020 include Universalisation of Early Childhood Care Education (ECCE), national mission to focus on basic literacy and basic numeracy, no rigid separation between arts and sciences streams and removal of separation between vocational and academic and curricular and extra-curricular.
