Tamil Nadu asks two universities not to implement UGC circular on Hindi

It was stated in the UGC circular that Hindi be taught as a primary language along with English in undergraduate courses, besides following it in Law and Commerce streams also

 

Maintaining its opposition to “imposition” of Hindi in the state, the Tamil Nadu government on Thursday directed two universities not to implement the UGC circular and said the decision taken by the previous UPA government would not be binding on it.

 

Chief Minister Jayalalithaa said the move, amounting to “imposing Hindi”, had been initiated during the previous government.

 

She said the two institutions – Anna University and Alagappa University – had received the circular on 16 September 2014 where it was stated that Hindi be taught as a primary language along with English in undergraduate courses, besides following it in Law and Commerce streams also.

 

She said this decision had been taken at the meeting of the Kendriya Hindi Samiti (National Hindi Council) on 28 July 2011 under then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

 

The Official Languages Act, 1963, made it clear that Hindi should not be imposed on states not speaking the language, while the communication between Centre and such states, classified as ‘Zone C’, should only be in English, as mandates later.

 

“Therefore, the UGC circular will not at all apply to universities in Tamil Nadu,” she said.

The UGC is stupid, the TN Govt is more stupid. The UGC should have made it optional or the TN Govt should insist Hindi as optional. The DMK Govt Rejected HINDI and the CM Family members learnt Hindi. The people of TN have been made immobile and have to stick to their state.

"The people of TN have been made immobile and have to stick to their state." - Really? Sundar Pitchai, Indra Nooyi,etc are immobile? People from Hindi speaking states are highly mobile?

NGO says no to reveal name of whistleblower in 'entry register' case

CPIL, the NGO, refused to reveal the name of whistleblower who provided it documents against the CBI director claiming risk to life of that person

 

Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL), a non-governmental organisation (NGO) on Thursday refused to reveal name of the whistleblower, who provided it documents against Ranjit Sinha, the director of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

 

The NGO has levelled allegations against the CBI Director in the Supreme Court. In its plea, CPIL said, "The life of the whistleblower will be in danger if his/ her name is revealed".

 

Allegations against the CBI Director can be verified by examining the documents and guards who had manned his official residence, the NGO told the apex court.

The name of the whistleblower is immaterial. It could be anyone. What is important is to investigate the FACTS of the case. Verify the information provided by the WHISTLEBLOWER. Actually whoever is the whistleblower, he or she is a PATRIOT of the highest order in todays' condition of the COUNTRY.

First of all there is no robust WITNESS PROTECTION PROGRAMME In India like U.S.A as provided by FBI AND C.I.A.

Secondly Indian law agencies had earned bad repute in unable to defend Witness who risk their lives in long tedious court procedure and gets slaughtered later on .

Now in this case , veracity of information is more important than source bcoz this is not the right time to reveal the source .
Ranjit sinha had violated the law and ethics of CBI director brazenly and is caught like a DEER in Headlights.

Recently a report submerged
That he is used to MUGHAL -ERA Lifestyle
with 22 cooks and what not .
His lifestyle and his tax returns are not compatible.

My over imagination In India
I wish 21 cooks can be sent to J and K for helping the needy people out there.
