She alleged Mr Karunanidhi, acknowledged for his strong pro-Tamil stand and selling it, had surely“unnoticed” divine Tamil and requested if it wasn’t a “betrayal” to the Tamil people.

Ms Sounderrajan questioned Mr Karunanidhi, whose birthday party had efficaciously spearheaded the anti-Hindi agitation inside the kingdom in Sixties, as to what he had achieved for Tamil, and requested if he may want to as a minimum control to make the language the medium of guidance in colleges in Tamil Nadu.
“but if the Centre is taking steps for promoting Indian tradition, he’s ranting,” she said.
On his comments that the Centre were “ignoring” DMK’s request for 50 years to claim all 22 Indian languages, listed inside the eight time table of the constitution, as respectable languages of the Uniongovernment, she pointed out that in this era his birthday party was a key constituent of the numerouscentral governments.
The Union HRD Ministry’s move (on Vedic schooling) was most effective geared toward the students of CBSE, and that too (to take as) an non-obligatory one, she said, adding “nobody is being forced” to take in Sanskrit.
The government‘s goal and responsibility turned into to make destiny technology comprehend thevalue of our way of life and there was no imposition of whatever, Ms Sounderrrajan said.
