  • | Wednesday | 5th August, 2020

Opposition leader and DMK chief M K Stalin thanked Palaniswami for his strongly worded statement against the Centre’s move.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on Monday rejected the three-language policy proposed by the Union government in the National Education Policy (NEP) and said the state will not deviate from its two-language policy, being followed for decades.

“Tamil Nadu will never allow the Centre’s three-language policy. The state will continue with its dual language policy (of Tamil and English),” he said in a statement.

Calling the Centre’s plan “painful and saddening”, Palaniswami said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should reconsider the three-language formula and allow states to implement their own policies on the subject.
