Kolkata: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said her party will hit the streets on the issue of "discrimination" against regional languages in JEE (Main).
Banerjee on Wednesday hit out at the Centre for taking the decision to conduct JEE in Gujarati while ignoring all the other regional languages.
"Both Maharashtra and Gujarat had opted for regional languages, then why Marathi language was left out," she questioned.
"In 2014, Maharashtra also opted for admitting the engineering candidates in the state engineering colleges through JEE and requested to provide the question paper in Marathi and Urdu.
Later in 2016, both these states withdrew the admission to the state engineering colleges through JEE (Main).
