外文标题：Use of local language can boost GDP, Smriti Irani says
NEW DELHI: While the row over removal of German language from Kendriya Vidyalaya curriculum continues, HRD minister Smriti Irani on Friday stressed on use of local languages in education and even suggested translation of scientific terminology in native languages.
Irani was addressing a conference on education organized under the banner of World Hindu Congress. Irani said, "Whenever I talk about history, they (press) make headlines. Everything is not bad about history. Ancient India had great scientific mind and rich knowledge. We need to find how to do its PR."
Stressing on the use of local languages in education, Irani, quoting a report prepared by a multinational software company, said "the report inferred that when reading, writing and comprehension is done in local language, country's GDP rises".

I thought Smriti is intelligent .She is classic stupid .What Sanskrit is going to do ? If India has edge over China that is only because of English .If we want to go to Germany Russia and France we need to know these languages .She must be immediately replaced .Classic stupid lady .
Foreign language slaves the real shame of India today. Well done Smirti.

Her attitude is going to create problem for the Govt. in future as there will be demand for scrapping of English paper from the students of Northern States simply on the excuse that uses of local language boost GDP.
