Chennai: CPM state secretary K Balakrishnan on Tuesday reiterated that his party would not in any way accept the three language formula to impose Hindi and would favour the continuation of the two-language formula.
“CPM stand in that all the languages, including Tamil listed under the eighth schedule of the Constitution to remain as official, governance and communication language. Until then, the two-language formula should be followed. It is totally unacceptable to impose Hindi under the guise of the three-language formula. There is no intention to insult another language but the Centre should try not to glorify one language at the cost of others,” he said in a statement.
Balakrishnan also opposed the common university entrance test for admission into the UG courses at Central University.
“Like NEET, the CUET will promote private coaching centres and thwart the opportunities for the students from poor and underprivileged sections,” he added.
He appealed to the Centre to refrain from imposing Hindi on non-Hindi speaking states and introduction of the CUET.
