The CM said: “The Indian language is a repository of our ancient wisdom. When linked to technical education, it has great potential and scope for rediscovering new dimensions. Students from rural areas, in particular, have immense potential and such regional language books will help them acquire technical knowledge. This will allow these students to apply their experiential learning in a much better form and help them become employable and serve society.
