Claiming English has been overemphasised compared to other subjects in school curriculum, the chief minister said his government’s priority was to “correct” the curriculum and promote Hindi. He also said most of the government work is done in Hindi and the state would not hesitate to encourage any good work done for promoting Hindi.
