Chennai: The Linguistic Minorities Forum of Tamilnadu has welcomed the
Central government’s three-language idea.

A press release from the forum thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the
initiative and Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami’s nationalistic
outlook beyond local politics.

“There are 13 minority languages in our State. Everybody agrees that no
language should be forced on any student, except the main language of the
State, to keep them in the mainstream of communications in day-to-day
transactions. But why should there be any objection if a student
voluntarily opts to study any other language? All educationists of the
State feel that Tamilnadu language policy is politically motivated and not
considering the career prospects of our students,” the release stated.
