The three- language formula in the National Education Policy, which is now dropped was being strongly opposed by the ex-Chief Minister of Karnataka and Congress Leader Siddaramiah on the grounds that there are already two languages which is Kannada and English and which is enough. He said the “Central Government has given a brutal assault by imposing Hindi”. He has also stated that “nothing should be done against our opinion and there is no need for three languages. Kannada is our mother tongue and the primacy should be given to Kannada”. It was stated by Mr. Siddaramiah to the reporters that there shall be no compromise in the issue of Karnataka’s land, water, and language.

Many political parties that belong to the non- Hindi speaking states like Telangana, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and Maharashtra have already warned the Central Government against imposing a language against their wishes.

The draft of the latest National Education Policy has proposed the teaching of Hindi in the non- Hindi states. The draft of the National Education Policy was formed by the Kasturirangan Committee. The draft said for the continuation of the three- language formula in schools. Union Minister Prakash Javadekar has clarified that the committee has only prepared a draft report and no decision until now has been taken for implementing it.
