Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday, February 7, pitched for setting up at least one medical college and a technical institution in each state that will impart education in the native language.

While addressing a gathering after the launch of ''Assam Mala'' scheme to upgrade state highways and laying the foundation for two medical colleges.

Modi said, there is no dearth of talent in the villages and far-flung areas. I have a daring dream of each state having at least one medical college and a technical institution imparting education in the local language.

Next day, on February 8, BJP MLA Ashish Shelar wrote a letter to the Chief Minister demanding that Maharashtra should immediately take initiative to set up institutions providing education in Marathi.

In the letter, Ashish Shelar said that in his speech, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has appealed to the nation to set up institutes to impart engineering and medical education in the mother tongue. Responding to this, the Government of Maharashtra should immediately take the initiative to set up two such institutions.

The 94th All India Marathi Literary Convention is being held on the birthplace of freedom fighters Vinayak Damodar Savarkar and Kusumagraj. Considering the contribution and importance of this All India Marathi Sahitya Sammelan in the Marathi language, before the 100th All India Marathi Sahitya Sammelan, if technical and medical education institutes are established in the Marathi language, the language and it will be an honour for Maharashtra, he added.

At the same time, if these two institutions stand before the time of celebrating the 75th anniversary of Maharashtra, the Marathi language may get a different dimension.

In India, teaching and learning have largely been in a foreign language but that could change with the advent of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, Modi exclaimed.
