Chennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, M.K. Stalin on Tuesday demanded that all central government examinations should be conducted in regional languages. He said that this will benefit students from all states of the country.
It may be recalled, the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister was the first one to demand the conduct of the Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) in regional languages including Tamil. The central government had in April announced that CAPF examinations would be conducted in 13 languages other than Hindi and English.
Stalin in a statement on Tuesday said that this was a long pending demand of the DMK in the parliament, state legislative assembly and in all public forums. He said that opportunities for youth should not be limited to those who know Hindi and English only and if central government exams are allowed to be written in regional languages, many youngsters would benefit.
Stalin said that India is a Union of States and that youth from all states should get equal opportunities. He added that everyone should raise their voices to conduct the central government examinations in regional languages and added that this move would be victorious in the days to come.
