Sanjay Kumar Jha, Water Resources Department Minister in the Nitish Kumar government has appealed the Ministry of Human Resource Development to conduct the JEE Mains examination in the Maithili language as well.
The Member of Legislative Council took to Twitter to share his thoughts. He wrote, “after adding the Maithili language in the 8th Schedule, UPSC recognised the same and many students took it up as their optional subject”.
2003 में मैथिली को संविधान की 8वीं अनुसूची में शामिल करने के बाद #UPSC द्वारा मान्यता मिली और यह कई सफल युवाओं का चुनिंदा विषय रहा है।@HRDMinistry से अनुरोध है कि क्षेत्रीय भाषाओं का सम्मान करते हुए #JEEMains में गुजराती की तरह मैथिली को भी जगह मिले।https://t.co/EKSCDPDq6D

“I request the HRD Ministry to respect the regional languages; just like Gujarati, Maithili must also be added as the JEE examination language choice,” he added.
