On the occasion of addressing the academicians at the 6th All India Technical and Management Council (AITMC) Summit, the Union Minister Vijya Sampala said technical education should be imparted in the regional language in order to provide a level field to all the students because imparting the education in English puts the rural youth at a disadvantage in comparison to the urban counterparts.
Reason behind teaching in regional language
"Youths in remote areas who have obtained technical education can't compete with their counterparts in cities. Local language plays a vital role in this," Sampla said.
The Union Minister for social justice said that a student from suburban or rural areas cannot understand English which is to them is no different from a foreign language.
So in order to solve the issue Sampla proposed that technical education be imparted in regional languages so that everyone can study on equal level. "It is because of trial and errors and determination that we have become the largest exporter of software services and made other countries to seek our help to send satellites," Sampla said.
Speaking on the occasion, BJP national secretary Tarun Chugh said, "If we look at ancient history of India, there were so many innovations taken up by people in diverse field without even receiving required training".
