UGC member MM Ansari hits out at Smriti Irani

University Grants Commission (UGC) member MM Ansari on Thursday hit out at HRD Minister Smriti Irani accusing her of “abruptly” discontinuing mid-session teaching of German language in Central schools and said her tenure so far as been “far from satisfactory”.

He said he was not bothered about the possible fallout of his open outburst against Irani as “everyone is concerned about the performance of the Ministry but nobody is talking about it”.

The minister’s office refused to comment on his allegations. Ansari said she has failed to announce a single scheme or measure that will strengthen the education sector or carry out institutional reforms that will impact the quality of education.
