DMK chief Stalin demands railway exam be taken in Tamil
DMK president MK Stalin has opposed to holding the General Departmental Competitive exams (GDCE) in only Hindi and English. He protests against the railway ministery for not holding in all regional languages.
DMK Stalin has written a letter to all Zonal railways, the employees shaped to be held only Hindi and English. This was based on a query from the Hyderabad based south-central railway.
Stalin said, “I condemn the decision to have the exam only in two languages. The issue was raised by the South-Central Railway and the Railway Board replied to the query to say that the exam will be held only tow languages.”
He also warned that “We will not accept the decision and the railway board should conduct the exam in all regional languages. If the board refuse to withdraw its decision, we will organise anti-hind protest again.”
Meanwhile, M Raghavaiah general secretary of National Federation of India Railway asked the Railway Board to reconsider its request, and vacancies filled up by GDCE is an integral part of the total vacancies and hence the exam should be held in a manner similar to RRBs.
