Maharastra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said in the Council on Thursday that those who live and learn in Maharashtra will have to follow Marathi and no board would be allowed to get away with it. He said that State’s directive on making Marathi mandatory in the curriculum is not being implemented by CBSE and IB schools and they would face strict action.
Mr Fadnavis said that they are planning to make the existing regulations more stringent in order to ensure that rules are implemented and no board will be allowed to get away with it.
Devendra Fadnavis has responded to this directive when a query was asked by Neelam Gorhe (Shiv Sena), who said that English schools with a curriculum of a global standard are shying away from the government directive.
Presenting a charter of demands, a delegation of leading linguists are about to meet the Chief Minister regarding the setting up of a regional board for implementation and development of Marathi as a language.
To make Marathi compulsory in non-Marathi schools across the State from Class I to IV Maharashtra Government issued resolutions repeatedly.
