Speaking on the occasion, the President said that he is happy to launch these important initiatives of the Union Ministry of Education. These are commendable steps towards making education accessible to all. It has been observed that many students face difficulty in understanding technical education in English. That is why the government has taken steps to provide technical education in regional languages ​​under the National Education Policy-2020.

The President said that there is no doubt that the mother tongue helps in the intellectual development of the students. He expressed confidence that learning in mother tongue would develop creative thinking and analytical skills in the students and it would provide equal opportunities to urban and rural students. He said that earlier technical education in regional languages ​​used to face hurdles due to non-availability of textbooks in local languages. He appreciated AICTE for its efforts in removing this hurdle.

President Murmu said that education is a means of empowerment. We must ensure that every child in our country has access to education at all levels. We have to try our best to make education available to all without any discrimination. Language should be an enabling factor and not a barrier to educate the students. The introduction of learning in regional and local languages ​​will go a long way in building a well-educated, aware and vibrant society. The President said that Odia is an ancient and rich language. It has a distinct literary tradition and rich vocabulary. So there will be no difficulty in getting technical education in Oriya language. He said that all Indian languages ​​have more or less the same potential. He was happy to know that equal importance is being given to all Indian languages ​​under the National Education Policy-2020.
