Bihar govt schools to teach Urdu
Patna: Apparently with an eye on the Muslim
vote bank, the JD(U)-BJP government in Bihar proposes to teach
Urdu in all its schools.
"We will be appointing Urdu teachers in every state-run
school to enable the students learn the language," Chief
Minister Nitish Kumar today said.
He was addressing a seminar on "Urdu language and national
unity" organised by the Cabinet Secretariat (Raj Bhasha)
Kumar said special preference would be given to those Urdu
teachers who are well-versed in other subjects as well.
The Chief Minister has asked the cabinet secretariat
department to send a proposal to him in this regard so that
immediate steps could be taken to start teaching of Urdu in
all the state-run schools.
