DMK president MK Stalin attacked the Centre and said that the revised draft National Education Policy (NEP) is the government’s attempt to hoodwink Tamils.
According to him, the revised draft of the Centre making Hindi optional for students who are willing to take it was only a fudging activity and a ruse hiding the real intent. Only the resistance from Tamil Nadu had forced this revision, but it could not be accepted. Stalin asserted that the party will never allow the hegemony of Hindi being imposed over Tamils.
Stalin questions Modi as to why he had lost out in Tamil Nadu. Modi has disrespected the sentiments of the Tamil people. Thrust down projects like hydrocarbon extraction and NEET exam for medical admissions which they were totally opposed to. The DMK president further added that now, Modi is playing with their pride, their language.
