Kolkata: State Education minister Partha Chatterjee on Wednesday came down heavily upon the National Education Policy (NEP) with Bengali not finding its place as a classical language in the policy.
They have also bypassed the Parliament and has passed NEP in the Central cabinet," said Chatterjee speaking at an education webinar organised by a leading Bengali daily.
The Higher Education department has already constituted a six member committee with noted educationists in the state eliciting opinion about NEP.
The department has also asked the different mass organisations working in the education sector to share their opinion on NEP.
Not only teachers' organisations or mass organisations working in the education sector but any educationist who is not a part of the committee is free to share his/her opinion about NEP.
