The Uttar Pradesh government made an announcement to end caste-based reservations in private medical and dental colleges of up. An order has been passed to do away with the quota for candidates belonging to SC, ST and OBC categories.

The Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government made an announcement saying caste-based reservations in private medical and dental colleges of Uttar Pradesh will cease to exist. The decision to scrap caste-based reservations was taken by the outgoing Akhilesh Yadav-led Uttar Pradesh government but is now being implemented by the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government.

An order has been passed to do away with quota for candidates belonging to Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST) and Other Backward Classes (OBC).

In such a short span of time, several initiatives have been taken by UP CM Yogi Adityanath for the betterment of state and to end corruption.

Other initiatives for enhancing UP's education system:

English to be introduced from Nursery:

Also, in order to enhance the state's education system, the Yogi Adityanath government is planning to introduce English in UP government schools from nursery instead of class 6, which is expected to blend nationalist and modern curricula.

He told a website, "The traditional and the modern should blend. We should have an education system which promotes nationalism but is modern.''

Yoga and self-defence programme in schools

He has also issued directions to the state officials for making a yoga education programme compulsory in government schools along with mandatory self-defence training for girl students.

Compulsory foreign language

The new BJP government has also decided to make efforts to ensure that students learn at least one foreign language. The concerned authorities have been directed to connect school syllabus with "nationalism" and "patriotism" as well as "culture."
