Manipur Education Minister S Rajen Singh on Saturday said that with the introduction of NEP (National Education Policy) 2020, the state has got a golden opportunity to replenish the society with age-old traditions and value system while achieving Sustainable Developmental Goals (SDGs).

Rajen was speaking at the two-day North East Education Conclave held at Guwahati Medical College, Assam, on November 20-21, which was chaired by Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan. The aim of education in ancient India was not just the acquisition of knowledge as preparation for life in this world or life beyond schooling but for complete realization and liberation of “SELF”, he said.

The minister maintained that Manipur has been focusing on developmental works related to Education Sector, especially under School Fagathansi Mission. He said the government, particularly the education department, has been trying to give government schools a makeover in its infrastructure and all requirements of an educational institution. The fruits of our SFM initiative could be seen in the recent enrolments, he added.

The minister also highlighted that Manipur, being the Jewel of India, has been bestowed with its rich culture and heritage. Rajen also informed that regarding higher education the government has started functioning National Scheme of RUSA from 2018.
