Medical education should be taught in Tamil, says Nirmala Sitharaman

Chennai: Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman said medical education needs to be well grounded and it can be greatly achieved if medical education can be taught in Tamil.

She was speaking at the 35th annual convocation of Tamil Nadu Dr MGR Medical University in Chennai. She observed that India is in a better position to face the Covid-19 surge but there is definitely a need to strengthen medical education.

"There are opportunities for students to be in a better position if medical and other related subjects are taught in Tamil," said the union minister. She clarified that she is not against the English language.

She further said: "Medical education should be taught in Tamil where people of the state love their language. Medical education does not pertain to doctors, it can be other subjects like nursing or dentistry. If it is available in Tamil language, it is better for us. There are possibilities to pursue research work."

"I have studied here (in Tamil Nadu) and I can say that it will be better for all of us to study in Tamil as there is an opportunity to progress. I do not expect that there will be any kind of opposition from Tamil Nadu since I am saying it in Tamil Nadu and the presence of the Minister for Medical Education (Ma Subramanian)," added Sitharaman.
