Chennai,
Apr
24:

Tamil
Nadu
government
has
refuted
reports
that
there
were
”discreet”
attempts
to
opt
for
the
three-language
system.

“We
will
continue
to
follow
only
the
two-language
system,
comprising
Tamil
and
English,
and
there
was
no
move
to
shift
to
the
three-language
formula,”
the
School
Education
Commissioner
said
on
Sunday.

Refuting
reports
in
a
section
of
media
that
there
were
”discreet” attempts
to
opt
for
the
three-language
system,
an
official
release
said,
”Tamil
Nadu
has
made
its
language
policy
clear
on
many
occasions.”
”Tamil,
which
is
the
mother
tongue,
and
the
global-link
language
English
have
been
in
vogue
(in
the
State)
as
per
the
two-language
formula,”
it
said.

According
to
a
2006
Act,
learning
Tamil
is
compulsory
till
Class
X
while
students
whose
mother
tongue
was
Telugu
or
Malayalam
or
Kannada
or
Urdu
can
learn
their
respective
language
also,
it
said.

”Therefore,
people
need
not
have
any
apprehension
over
the
language
subject
policy
which
has
been
made
amply
clear
and
must
not
believe
in
reports
that
are
contrary
to
facts
and
misleading,”
it
said.

Both
the
Dravidian
parties
in
Tamil
Nadu,
the
ruling
DMK
and
its
rival
AIADMK,
who
have
ruled
the
State
since
1967
at
different
times,
are
opposed
to
the
implementation
of
the
three-language
formula
in
the
State,
saying
Tamil
and
English
would
suffice
and
there
was
no
need
for
a
third
one

Hindi.
