Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday (29 July) inaugurated the 'Akhil Bhartiya Shiksha Samagam' at Bharat Mandapam in Delhi.

The event coincides with the third anniversary of the launch of National Education Policy 2020.

PM Modi also released the first installment of funds under the PM SHRI scheme.

As many as 6,207 schools received the first instalment with a total sum amounting to 630 crore rupees.

He also released education and skill curriculum books translated into 12 Indian languages.

The Prime Minister also took a walkthrough of the exhibition showcased on the occasion.

Addressing the gathering, PM Modi underlined the primacy of education among the factors that can change the destiny of the nation.

“Our education system has a huge role in achieving the goals with which 21st century India is moving”, he said.

Emphasizing the importance of the Akhil Bhartiya Shiksha Samagam, the Prime Minister said that discussion and dialogue are important for education.

The Prime Minister mentioned the coincidence of the last Akhil Bhartiya Shiksha Samagam taking place in the newly constructed Rudraksha convention center of Varanasi and this year’s event taking place in the brand new Bharat Mandapam.

This is the first event at the Mandapam after its formal inauguration, the Prime Minister's Office said in a statement.

From the Rudraksha of Kashi to the modern Bharat Mandapam, the Prime Minister said that there is a hidden message in the journey of Akhil Bhartiya Shiksha Samagam of amalgamation of ancient and modern.

He said that on the one hand, the educational system of India is preserving the ancient traditions of the land while on the other hand, the nation is fast progressing in the field of science and technology.
