Regional languages essential to unlock potential: Amit Shah



Union Minister of Home Affairs in India, Amit Shah, has stated that the promotion of regional languages is essential to unlock the full potential of Indian talents. Speaking on the second anniversary of the launch of National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, he remarked that 95% of students obtain primary education in their mother tongue.

And therefore, law, medicine and engineering should be taught in Indian languages. “Research and development can only be done when one thinks in their own language, and this was one of the reasons that India is lagging in the research field,” he said.

The minister further emphasised that ten States have accepted regional languages as a medium of instruction for engineering courses, and several initiatives are being taken to encourage Indian languages in higher education.
