"This launch in the field of medical education is going to bring a positive change in the country. With this, while lakhs of students will be able to study in their own language, many doors of opportunities will also open for them," PM Modi said while responding to the tweet of Indian Home Minister Amit Shah.
Amit Shah, in a first-of-its-kind step in the country, on October 16, launched the Hindi version of MBBS course books in Bhopal.
While addressing the event, the Home Minister said, "Today is a very important day for the education sector of India. Whenever history will be written in the coming days, this day will be written in golden letters."
"Through the New Education Policy, PM Modi has given more emphasis to the mother tongue of students. This is a historic decision. Now under Modi Ji you can avail higher education in any language as per your comfort," Shah said.
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and state medical education minister Vishwas Sarang were also present on the occasion.
Madhya Pradesh is the first state to start the MBBS course in the Hindi language in the country.
A team of 97 experts have been working on the preparation of books for the last 232 days at Gandhi Medical College, Bhopal. They have been translating the book from English to Hindi.
