Referring to the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, which encourages technical courses in one's mother tongue, Union Home and Cooperation Minister Amit Shah announced that the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Vishwavidyalaya in Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh, will begin offering MBBS in Hindi on October 16 this year.

At the foundation stone laying ceremony of the new campus of Gujarat Technological University (GTU) in Lekawada of Gandhinagar, Shah said, “The NEP has encouraged mother language as when a student thinks in his mother tongue, he can understand and research better. Some people might find this strange but I want to reiterate that when students think, talk and study in their mother tongue, he can research better unlike rote learning. That is the reason from October 16, Atal Bihari Vajpayee Vishwavidyalaya will offer complete first semester of MBBS course in Hindi.”

Priorities Indian language

Listing out benefits of the NEP, Shah said, “The National Education Policy is not just a book, but a library. Priority has been given to Indian language, art and culture. Modi ji has taken the initiative to improve the standard of living of people through technology,” he added.

On the second day of his two-day visit to Gujarat, Shah attended the laying of the foundation stone for the 750-bed Adarsh Multispeciality Hospital at Kalol, the inauguration of an underpass built by the Gandhinagar Municipal Corporation at a cost of Rs 34.74 crore, and the laying of the foundation stone for a martyr memorial and library in Samou village in Mansa taluka of Gandhinagar district. In Gandhinagar district, he also visited temples in Rupal and Bahucharaji in Mansa.

Also present at the event were Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel, Union Labour Minister and BJP’s Gujarat incharge Bhupendra Yadav, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya, and former Lok Sabha MP from Mehsana Dr AK Patel.
