Bhubaneswar, Oct 1: Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has sought the personal intervention of Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren for implementation of the values enshrined in the New Education Policy 2020 and preserving the best interests of Odia speaking school children in Jharkhand.

“Keeping in mind the values enshrined in the New Education Policy 2020 and preserving the best interest of Odia speaking school children in Jharkhand, I seek your personal intervention in supporting and securing Odia language education in Jharkhand State for its Odia speaking population,” said Pradhan in a letter.

“The Union Government and I remain committed to support the State Government in this endeavour and also in protecting and preserving the cultural and linguistic diversity of the country,” he said.

He said after the initial retirement of teachers posted in Odia Medium Schools, the State Education Department seems to be gradually giving up this practice and is now appointing Hindi speaking teachers in Odia Medium Schools.
