Press Trust of India  |  Chennai 

working president today urged the state to ensure that Tamil is taught in CBSE and ICSE schools in even as he maintained that BJP-led Centre was imposing Hindi.

Reiterating the charge that the centre was imposing Hindi, he said, hence it becomes "imperative," for the regime to ensure compulsory teaching of Tamil in schools.



"The lax attitude of the regime in this issue makes one wonder if they are acting in cahoots with the in the centre," he said.

He accused the of "half-hearted implementation" of the Tamil Learning Act which was enacted during his party's previous regime in 2006.

The Act made it compulsory for students from first to tenth standards to learn Tamil as a subject in schools.

He dubbed an order issued in 2014 by the to compulsorily teach Tamil in CBSE schools as "namesake," and alleged that it was "inadequately implemented."

He also alleged that the was acting slow on issues like appointment of teachers, and ensuring adequate infrastructure.

He said such sluggish attitude in turn was "enabling students whose mother tongue is not Tamil to gain exemption from court of law," from sitting for Tamil exam.

Stalin requested the to move ahead to implement compulsory Tamil language instruction in CBSE and ICSE schools from first to tenth standards using the provisions of Tamil Learning Act, 2006.

The leader, who is also the Leader of Opposition in Assembly, said the should hasten the appointment of Tamil teachers in schools and ensure that Tamil Learning Act was implemented in "full force" as soon as possible.

The state should take initiative in ensuring that the younger generation was made aware of the rich cultural legacy of Tamil language, he said.

In 1968, during the first regime led by former chief minister C N Annadurai three-language policy of Tamil, English and Hindi was dumped in favour of a "two-language policy," of Tamil and English.
