The National Education Policy – 2020 is the first education policy of the 21st century. Its goal is to meet the requirements needed to strengthen the development of our country. With the introduction of the “New Education Policy” in Karnataka, “Sports” has been made a part of the “compulsory curriculum”. In order to promote sports activities in India, the Union Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports has formulated and implemented many effective schemes. The result is that more medals have been won in the Olympics and Para-Olympics, he observed.
Kuvempu University is one of the premier universities of our State which is named after the great writer and Rashtrakavi Kuvempu. A Jnanpith awardee, Kuvempu was awarded the title of ‘Rashtrakavi’ in 1958 and ‘Karnataka Ratna’ in 1992. He contributed to ‘World Humanism’ and the ideals of Kuvempu, who wrote the Karnataka State Anthem ‘Jai Bharat Jananiya Tanujathe’, is an inspiration to all of us.
The university has earned national and international fame and has received many national and international awards in various activities.
Geetha Narayan, D. H. Shankaramurthy, B. M. Srikanth and Prof. Kattimani, Mahantesh and B. R. Aravind have been awarded an Honorary Doctorate for their outstanding contribution. I hope that these achievers will be involved in social service in the same way and become an inspiration to all.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is committed to make a new India, a great India, a self-reliant India by connecting education, skills and moral values. I am confident that the younger generation will participate in making a India a self-reliant nation, he expressed hope.
The Indian education system has been focused on the philosophy of “Vasudaiva Kutumbakam” since ancient times.

Like the history of the freedom movement, the journey of 75 years is a reflection of the hard work, innovation, and entrepreneurship of Indians, he observed.
