CHENNAI: On a day when Express reported that an RSS wing was helping the Union Human Resources Ministry bring out a ‘holistic’ new education policy next year, Vaiko on Sunday stoutly opposed the move and accused the BJP government of trying to implement RSS agenda in education.

Union Human Resources Minister Smriti Irani had announced that the Centre would formulate a new policy in education, which would be implemented from next year. The Bharatiya Shikshan Mandal (BSM) functioning under the RSS had recommended to the Centre that the educational system in the country in place for the last 48 years should be changed, Vaiko noted in a statement here.

At present, the 10+2+3 system formulated by the Kothari Education Commission in 1966 was being followed. But, the BMS had recommended 8+4+3 system under which Hindi and English should be learnt along with the mothertongue for the first eight years. In the next four years, one of the classical languages like Sanskrit, Arabic, Latin, Greek or Hebrew should be learnt compulsorily in the next four years.
