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.

Another effort by BJP to make a Hindi-Hindu Hindustan: Kanimozhi
Students are forced to study Hindi Sanskrit instead of their mother tongue. This will lead to another language struggle through out the country. This is another of BJPs efforts to make a Hindi-Hindu Hindustan.— Kanimozhi (கனிமொழி) (@KanimozhiDMK) June 18, 2018
