Shashi Tharoor, Senior Congress leader and three-time Lok Sabha MP from from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, has welcomed the new education policy by the government.

However, the former MOS HRD, Tharoor expressed his disappointment why the government did not bring it before Parliament first for discussion.

In series of tweets, Tharoor explained the challenges that lies ahead.

In one of his tweets he wrote, There is much to welcome in what we have seen of the #NewEducationPolicy2020 announced by@DrRPNishank. A number of suggestions made by some of us seem to have been taken into account. However,the question remains why this was not brought before Parliament first for discussion.

In another tweet, Tharoor said, Overall, my worry is the NEP showcases a strong tendency towards centralisation, high aspiration w/low feasibility,& an unspoken assumption that much of the challenge will be met by the private sector, which will drive up costs & make many opportunities unaffordable for the poor.

Tharoor too complimented the effort though, by writing in a tweet , That said, there is much to admire in the #NewEducationPolicy2020 &I look forward to a constructive discussion in Parliament,in which these concerns can be addressed &clarifications given. I commend @DrRPNishank &his team for their efforts. A better-educated India is vital 4all.
