Narendra Modi cabinet ministers’ children not only studied in foreign universities, but many of them have also studied in Indian universities.
The Railways and Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal’s Facebook page shows, his daughter graduated from Harvard University and HRD minister Ramesh Pokhriyal daughter Arushi Nishank’s Facebook page reveals that she completed her graduation from Banasthali University in Rajasthan, India and International Business Diploma certification from Cambridge University.
The Linkedin page of Vangmayi Parakala, daughter of Nirmala Sitharaman, Minister of Finance and Corporate Affairs shows that she did her graduation from Delhi University in India and MS in Journalism from Northwestern University, United States and another Linkedin page shows that Ministry of Labour Santosh Gangwar’s daughter, Shruti Gangawar had studied in IIT-Roorkee and IIM- Bengaluru.
The children of ministers in the Modi government had completed their studies in Indian universities and also from foreign universities. The IITs are primarily engineering institutes which offer undergraduate (B.Tech) and postgraduate (M.Tech) programs in engineering and technology. They will not offer any other education.
Even though a few children of ministers in the Narendra Modi cabinet have studied abroad, the majority of them have completed their studies from Indian Universities. Thus it cannot be concluded that foreign Universities like Harvard and Oxford are their preferred destinations for higher education.
