The Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) has demanded that entrance examinations for the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) be conducted in Tamil too.

In a statement here, its founder S. Ramadoss said as a matter of principle, the party was opposed to any type of entrance examinations for admission to any government educational institution.

However, when entrance tests were conducted for admission to Central educational institutions, they should be conducted in Tamil also. At present, such examinations were conducted in English and Hindi, he pointed out.
