As the two joined the platform at an event in Chennai to promote a host of infrastructure projects, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make Tamil an official language on par with Hindi. After a bill was recently enacted in the state assembly, Mr Stalin also urged for exempting Tamil Nadu from the national medical entrance test NEET. "Make Tamil the official language like Hindi and the official language in Madras High Court," the Chief Minister urged. The DMK, which came to power in Tamil Nadu last year, has long sought that Tamil be designated as a "official and administrative" language. When the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) was in power, Tamil was designated as a "classical language." PM Modi characterized the Tamil language as "eternal" while speaking at the event.
