He asked the students to work hard for becoming a successful person
Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday evening said the National Education Policy-2020 has been drafted with an objective of providing holistic and multi-disciplinary education to students.
He asked the students to work hard for becoming a successful person but at the same also motivated them to work for the welfare of the society at large.
Shah, who was on a day-long visit to Chandigarh, on Saturday evening inaugurated the newly constructed building of the government model high school, Mauli Jagran and virtually inaugurated the school buildings of government model high school, Sector 12 and government model high school, Kishangarh.
These buildings will accommodate 5,100 students in total and are equipped with labs, classrooms, playgrounds etc.
Addressing the gathering here, Shah said the NEP-2020 has been drafted very minutely. It focuses on personality development and developing capabilities of students so they excel in their lives, said Shah.
He further said that there was no alternative to hard work for becoming a successful person.
He urged the students to hoist the national flag atop their houses between August 13 and 15 as part of the Centre's 'Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav' celebration.
Hoist the tricolour and post a selfie with it on the central government's website. Borrow mobile phones from your parents, neighbours, but do take selfies, he urged them.
