She said "The country is lacking infrastructure, because the number of colleges in the country is not enough to cater to the needs of a huge population."
"20 colleges have been opened in the year 1967 and it is 2013 now where not even a single college has been opened. The population at that time used to easily get admission in those 20 colleges. But today, after scoring 97.5% a student cries for not getting admission in the college", she said.
Sushma Swaraj along with other BJP members also stressed on the need for promoting the teaching of Hindi, the national language. They suggested that Hindi must be taught for at least 5 years in schools, rather than stressing on English language.
She infact criticized on the education system for not being able to admit brilliant students with high scores. "Indian society first needs to change their perception in terms of education System, only then, can the necessary modifications can be carried out", she added.
She further explains that, India continues to face stern challenges despite growing investment in education from public as well as private sector 25% of its population is still illiterate. As per a study report, only 15% of Indian students reach high school while just 7% reach graduate level education.
"With a massive population falling under the age of 35, India is striving to improve the quality of education whether at primary or higher education that is significantly poor as compared with major developing nations", she said.
