"CTET examination will be conducted in all Indian languages as was being conducted earlier. I have already directed CBSE to conduct examination in all the 20 languages as was being done earlier," Javadekar tweeted.

DMK leader Kanimozhi on Monday took to twitter to express her anger at the CBSE's earlier decision to drop languages which she said will come as a blow to speakers of several regional languages. The decision to drop Tamil and 16 other regional languages from Central Teacher Eligibility Test is highly condemnable and strikes at the root of federalism. Students of CBSE whose mother tongue is Tamil will be put to a great disadvantage without teachers.
