In another development, the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday criticised the centre for adding Gujarati as a medium for the Joint Entrance Examination (Main) and asked why all other regional languages, including Bengali, should not be included as well.
“Joint Entrance Examination so long were conducted in English and Hindi languages. Surprisingly, now only Gujarati language has been added. Such a step is not at all praiseworthy,” Banerjee tweeted. If Gujarati has to be there, then all regional languages, including Bengali must be there, the chief minister tweeted.
