Kanimozhi expresses anger at CBSE's earlier decision

DMK leader Kanimozhi today expressed her anger on Twitter at CBSE's earlier decision which she said will come as a blow to speakers of several regional languages.

She said the decision to drop Tamil and 16 other languages from CTET strikes at the root of federalism.

"Students of CBSE whose mother-tongue is Tamil will be put to a great disadvantage without teachers," she tweeted.
