Telangana CM urges PM Modi to allow job-seekers to write competitive exams in regional languages – education
Telangana Prime Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to allow central government job seekers to write competitions in the respective regional languages.
Rao, in a letter to Modi on Thursday, said that currently all competitions for positions in the central government, central PSUs, Railways, defense services and nationalized banks are conducted only in Hindi and English and those who also do not study in English. Medium and non-Hindi-speaking states face a serious disadvantage in competitive exams.
“In order to provide fair and equitable opportunities to students from all states in India, candidates are requested to be able to write all competitive exams in regional languages also for recruitment in Government of India and its departments and companies through UPSC and all other agencies such as Railroad Contracting Boards, public sector banks, RBI, personnel selection commission, etc. ”He said in his letter.
Meanwhile, Telangana’s chief minister, in another letter to President Ram Nath Kovind, asked him to post the commemorative stamp, which the center plans to remove former prime minister PV Narasimha Rao, during his visit to the city for his annual stay in the South.
According to Rao, launching the stamp here would be a “fitting tribute” to the former prime minister who hailed from the state, was a multifaceted and reforming leader, and not only initiated pioneering economic reforms, but also made a substantial contribution to human resource development and relationships between other fields.
