External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has said that the Central government respects all languages and no language will be imposed on any part of the country. In a tweet, he said, all stakeholders - general public and state governments - will be consulted before taking a final call on the three-language norm. 

Dr Jaishankar said the National Education Policy as submitted to the HRD Minister is only a draft report. In another tweet in Tamil, he said, it is only after the recommendation of the people, the Union government will take forward the draft education policy. Dr Jaishankar said, the government will promote all Indian languages.

Education Secretary R Subrahmanyam had on Saturday also clarified that no policy decision has been taken by the Central government yet and there will be no imposition of any language in educational institutions. He said, this is a draft policy submitted by the committee and is placed for the views of the general public. 

Mr Subrahmanyam said, it is not the policy announced by the government. He said, after getting feedback from the general public, and after consulting state governments, the National Educational Policy will be finalised by the government. 

He said, Narendra Modi government is committed for equal development and promotion of all Indian languages. Mr Subrahmanyam said, there will be no imposition of any language in educational institutions, nor discriminations against any language.
