Farrukhabad (UP) | The Centre is considering implementing a new education system by changing the present one, Union minister Ram Shankar Katheria has said.

The central government is seriously considering implementing a new education system by making fundamental changes, including the system of not failing students up to Class VIII, in the present one, the Union Minister of State for HRD told reporters here yesterday.

The acceptance of the Indian education system has increased in the world. The Narendra Modi government has set a target of establishing 20 private and public universities. In these varsities, more than 500 professors of international standards will be invited to train students, he said.

Attacking Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, Katheria said his love for Muslims is a sham. Talking about reservation for Muslims is not bad but most backwards and Dalits should also be given their rights.

The Muslim voters have favoured BJP in Assam, he said. He alleged that BSP chief Mayawati had collected money in the name of Dalits but she will not be able to influence the community again.
