''As you all know, our Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) has a commitment to take the country forward along with our culture and our language. I also have been emphasising on this--that the Indian courts and the Indian legal system must have regional languages in the curricular activities.'' ''I have already spoken to the Chief Justice of India, senior judges of the Supreme Court and all the Chief Justices of the High Courts, that in the future we must give priority to the regional languages,'' he said.

Rijiju added ''we all will be proud to see that Tamil language takes centrestage in the high court and all the district and subordinate courts (in the future).'' ''I am opposed to the imposing only one language. We must give priority to local languages,'' the minister added. Tamil Nadu Governor RN Ravi, also the Chancellor of the varsity and state Law Minister S Regupathy, among others attended.
