Former Karnataka Chief minister Kumarswamy and Tamil Nadu MP Kanimozhi have opposed the union government’s SSC notification for conducting Combined Graduate Level Examination-2022 in Hindi and English Language only. These issues were brought to their notice by kannada activists by tagging them on twitter. Both of them have tweeted their opposition and displeasure over language discrimination.
Kumarswamy has tweeted
“The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) of the Center is conducting the examination for the selection of 20,000 posts in Hindi-English only. Selected candidate can be sent to any state. Examination in any regional language including Kannada is not allowed.
Do we need more proof of Hindi imposition, language discrimination?” It seems that the government is hell bent on to suppress the regional languages. It seems that there is more impatience and hatred towards southern regional languages including Kannada. It seems that a they are going to bury the three language formula”
ಕೇಂದ್ರದ ಸಿಬ್ಬಂದಿ ಆಯ್ಕೆ ಆಯೋಗ (SSC) 20,000 ಹುದ್ದೆ ಆಯ್ಕೆಗೆ ಹಿಂದಿ-ಇಂಗ್ಲೀಷ್ʼನಲ್ಲಿ ಮಾತ್ರ ಪರೀಕ್ಷೆ ನಡೆಸುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಆಯ್ಕೆಯಾದ ಅಭ್ಯರ್ಥಿಯನ್ನು ಯಾವ ರಾಜ್ಯಕ್ಕಾದರೂ ಕಳುಹಿಸಬಹುದು. ಕನ್ನಡ ಸೇರಿ ಯಾವುದೇ ಪ್ರಾದೇಶಿಕ ಭಾಷೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಪರೀಕ್ಷೆಗೆ ಅವಕಾಶವಿಲ್ಲ.
ಹಿಂದಿ ಹೇರಿಕೆ, ಭಾಷಾ ತಾರತಮ್ಯಕ್ಕೆ ಇದಕ್ಕಿಂತ ಸಾಕ್ಷಿ ಬೇಕೆ? 1/5 pic.twitter.com/upGS4AXwKE

He has also urged the government to conduct the exams only after kannada language is included for the test. Or else the those who get selected will be at the mercy of union government.
DMK’s Kanimozhi has tweeted
“I strongly oppose the Union Government’s announcement that only English and Hindi will be used in CGL examinations administered by the Staff Selection Commission for Union Government departmental positions. The Indian Union’s sovereignty is rooted in its pluralism. On the contrary, trying to impose singularity on everything is going against the democratic spirit.”

20 ಸಾವಿರ ಹುದ್ದೆಗೆ SSC ಮೂಲಕ ಹಿಂದಿ/ಇಂಗ್ಲೀಶ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಮಾತ್ರ ಪರೀಕ್ಷೆ
