New Delhi: The Centre does not want to take any confrontation with the states on the proposed new education policy. In this connection, Human Resource Development Minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank has held lengthy talks with the Education Minister of Tamil Nadu on Monday.
The discussion with Tamil Nadu is also significant because, after the introduction of the new education policy, Tamil Nadu was the first to protest against the mandatory requirement of Hindi under the tri-language formula. The government had removed the suggestion of Hindi's necessity after the controversy broke out.
