Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi, along with Deputy Chief Minister M.K. Stalin, will inaugurate three educational institutions in the district on March 7.

These include the government medical college at Mundiampakkam, a government arts college at Thiruvennainallur and a government polytechnic at Thirukkoilur, according to Higher Education Minister K. Ponmudy.

He was speaking at the inauguration of ‘Student Improvement Programme’ held at Arignar Anna Government Arts College here on Sunday.

Last year, two government engineering colleges affiliated to Anna University-Chennai were opened at Villupuram and Tindivanam. For improving the soft skills of the students and to enhance their employability, language laboratories, particularly to improve proficiency in English language, had been set up in colleges.

The Minister underscored the point that his government was neither against English nor against Hindi. He said learning should be in Tamil medium with English as the link language. The Minister was appreciative of the Villupuram district showing impressive results in S.S.L.C and Plus-Two public examinations last year.
