The Union Minister also said that before announcing the list of regional languages for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), the government had issued a circular to all states. But, Karnataka government did not seek inclusion of Kannada in NEET then. “Now, the government has changed its stand, considering the sentiments of people, we will definitely add Kannada as one of the languages,” the minister said while addressing a ceremony in NIMHANS (National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences), Bengaluru.


Earlier, The Kannada Development Authority (KDA) Chairman Prof S G Siddaramaiah had written a letter to HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar to include Kannada as one of the regional languages for the NEET 2017. Read the full story here.
