DMK MP Tiruchi Siva on Friday i.e 09-08-2021 wrote a letter to union educational minister Dharmendra Pradhan say that to include Tamil as a second language in the syllabus of Kendriya Vidyalaya(kV) and also in other CBSE schools in the Tamil Nadu state from the current academic year 2021-2022. The MP mentioned that he had raised this issue during the zero-hours in parliament that 49 Kendriya Vidyalaya schools in Tamilnadu had deprived students from learning Tamil.
In the letter on Friday he mentioned that: “In the 49 Kendriya Vidyalaya schools, there is not even one Tamil teacher and this deprives the local students of studying their mother tongue as a subject in their own state. On the other hand, Hindi and Sanskrit are compulsory and a student studying Class 6 will be promoted to Class 7 only if he passes the Sanskrit examination.”
After the issue is mentioned by the MP in Rajya Sabha, “the chairman of Rajya Sabha the education ministry to take note of the issue” is mentioned in the letter by the MP. He also said that the issue was brought under the notice of then educational minister Ramesh Pokhriyal on February 10 and the minister responded that the appropriate action on the issue will be taken into consideration on March 2nd.
DMK MP Tiruchi Siva also added in the letter: “But recently the CBSE has uploaded textbooks for the KV students studying from Class 1 to 10 online in which Tamil was not listed as a language subject. This is contrary to the assurance given by the Minister and has caused much anguish amidst the people of TN”.
He also mentioned that Tamil is an ancient language, and not being taught in union government-run schools is a serious matter in a country that has a constitutional federal structure.
MP also raised concerns over CBSE class 11th and 12th students choosing optional technical subjects instead of the second language. He also mentioned in the letter: “The move paves the way to avoid learning of the mother tongue. Opting out of learning Tamil in Tamil Nadu again hurts the sentiments of the people of the state.”
Hence, MP Tiruchi Siva requested the educational minister to include Tamil as a compulsory subject in kV and other CBSE schools in Tamil Nadu in the current academic year 2021-22 in order to satisfy the people in Tamil Nadu and to keep the spirit of federalism alive.
