Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Thursday slammed the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for keeping Punjabi out of the main subjects. Ahead of the upcoming CBSE Term 1 examination for classes 10th and 12th, the board on Thursday released the date sheet for minor exams for both classes. The class 10th list has Punjabi as one of the minor subjects apart from some other regional languages. Channi slammed the board saying that the exclusion impacts students who wish to learn their native language.
"I firmly oppose the CBSE's authoritarian decision to keep Punjabi out of the main subjects. This is against the federal spirit of Constitution, violating the right of Punjabi youth to learn their native language. I condemn this biased exclusion of Punjabi", Channi tweeted.
