Shilla Bishnab of Meghalaya participated in the discussion with the PM on the exam.


Shillong: During the 5th edition of the discussion on the exam, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday held talks with students across the country. Shilla Bishnab, representing the state of Meghalaya, was a Class IX student of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, Mawphlang.

A comprehensive discussion was held on consultation for the National Education Policy (NEP). Answering a question from Meghalaya student Shilla Bishnab’s on NEP, Prime Minister Modi said that people from all over India were consulted.

The Meghalaya student posed her question to NEP about how it would empower society in general and the lives of students in particular, and how it would pave the way for a “new India”.

A teacher from Haryana asked the same question and while answering the questions, PM Modi said that this is a ‘national’ education policy and not a ‘new’ education policy.

He said that the policy was formulated after much deliberation with various stakeholders. “Consultations for a national education policy have been completed. People across India have been consulted on this,” he said.
The Prime Minister further said that the policy was not formulated by the government but by the citizens, students and teachers for the development of the country. He added that NEP is an opportunity to follow someone’s spirit.

He emphasized the importance of knowledge as well as skills and highlighted the flexibility provided by NEP in the selection of subjects. Modi said that proper implementation of NEP would open up new avenues and urged schools across the country to find new ways to implement the new technologies invented by the students.

Meghalaya Governor Satyapal Malik, JNV Mawphlang students and teachers from Raj Bhavan in Shillong participated in the program.

The governor expressed pride in representing the state through JNV student Shilla Bishnab. “I am proud that a student from Meghalaya had to ask her question to the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister also answered the questions in a very good manner.

JNV teacher Priyanka described the discussion on the exam as an innovative way of connecting students and the entire Indian education system. “Our student had the opportunity to ask a question to the Prime Minister. I am very happy to see him. I think this way our students will have a positive attitude towards their exams,” the teacher said.Sheila Bishnab of Meghalaya participated in the discussion with the PM on the exam.
