Gujarat: The 5G telecom service would assent India's education system to the next level, beyond "smart facilities, smart classrooms, and smart teachings", said Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He also claimed that the New Education Policy (NEP) would rescue the country from the "slave mentality" surrounding the English language, PTI reported.

The Prime Minister was speaking after launching the Gujarat government's Mission Schools of Excellence initiative at Adalaj town in Gandhinagar district.

Addressing the launching of the Gujarat government's Mission Schools of Excellence initiative at Adalaj town in Gandhinagar district, the PM said that knowledge of English was considered as the mark of being intellectual even though the English language is just a medium of communication.

Now, the Mission will reinforce education infrastructure in Gujarat by setting up new classrooms, smart classrooms, computer labs and overall upgradation of the infrastructure of schools there.

"Recently-launched 5G service will go beyond smart facilities, smart classrooms, and smart teachings. It will take our education system to the next level," he said. Students will exp[ereince virtual reality, the Internet of Things, and other cutting-edge technologies in their schools with the help of the 5G service, he added.

He advocated for the use of regional languages, saying that those who are not comfortable with English must not be left behind.

"Earlier, knowledge of the English language was considered a criterion of being intellectual. In reality, the English language is just a medium of communication. This language barrier was a hindrance. Many young talents from villages could not become doctors and engineers because they were not well-versed in English," he said.

Youngsters now have options to pursue studies in other languages, Modi added.
