SHILLONG: The president of BJP Meghalaya Pradesh, Ernest Mawrie wants the State Government to make Khasi and Garo 'Compulsory Subjects' up to Class-V in all schools. Mawrie, on Thursday, also informed the decision to this effect was taken during a meeting of the State office bearers of the party when they discussed the new National Education Policy (NEP 2020).

He added that all schools in the State, whether government or private, or run by various religious or social organisations, should be brought under the new National Education Policy (NEP 2020); and it should be made mandatory for them to teach at least one local language as a compulsory subject for all students.

Regarding this, Mawrie further said that he would also be writing to Chief Minister Conrad Sangma and Education Minister Lakmen Rymbui.

Terming 'NEP 2020' as historic, Mawrie said that it was long overdue. He lauded the Central Government for the holistic overhauling of the education system in the country. He insisted that the Meghalaya Government should immediately implement the NEP provisions across the State.
