Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh says he has appealed to the Centre requesting permission for Maharashtrian students to take examination for their recruitment to the Central services in Marathi.
“When IAS exams can be conducted in Marathi, why not other exams? We will write to the Centre and make all efforts for this,” he said.
With all these efforts happening around India to end Hindi domination, will the Central Govt display its flexibility and consider all the scheduled languages as Official Languages of India? Is it time to revisit the Official Languages Act? Will the Central Govt really realize the mistake it has made in promoting Hindi as the unofficial, extra-constitutional 'National Language' of India?
