The ruling party has brought up very interesting educational initiatives alike 2014 manifesto. According to the analysis done by Scroll.in on the promises made by Modi-led gov. in 2014 for the education sector, it explains that:-

  1. 6% GDP raise was promised for education sector, but the last GDP raised according to survey was just 2.7% in 2017-18.
  2. Under ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao‘ scheme, girl students were to be provided possible help to continue and complete school education and it was fulfilled to an extent in 161 districts but with the lowest child sex ratio.

There are many instances, which prospects the accomplishments and the failures of the promises made in 2014. It is to look forward that, who comes in the power this year and whom will the students look through the eyes of hope in the fulfillment of their promises.
