New Delhi, July 8: An organisation affiliated to the RSS today floated suggestions that seek to replace English with Indian languages in the education system and change the way institutions are granted minority status.
The Bhartiya Shikshan Mandal (BSM) released a “draft education policy” that would allow students to become doctors or engineers without learning English.
The “policy”, mere suggestions that do not have any legal or official underpinning, will be discussed with about four lakh people in the next six months and submitted to the Union and state governments.
BSM national organising secretary Mukul Kanitkar told a media conference here that children were comfortable in studying in their mother tongue. At the secondary level, they should learn at least one classical language, he added.
