The state government had opposed the three-language proposal, by said that “As for Tamil Nadu, we would follow the two-language policy only and it was communicated to the Prime Minister through a letter on June 26, 2019.”
“If there is any harm to the Tamil language or Tamils, the government will take immediate action to eradicate it,” Palaniswami said in a series of tweets. Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami made the remarks after chairing a meeting of Cabinet colleagues at the Secretariat in Chennai.
