The minister during his maiden visit to Mangalore University said though Kannada is the official language of the state, knowing English has become the need of the hour for employment.
“Be it any industry, hotel or IT office, there is a requirement to know English for the job. For this the government will enter into a memorandum of understanding with the Wadhwani Foundation. The MoU is ready and will be signed soon,” he said. The Karnataka Higher Education Academy, Dharwad, will also train teachers in spoken English.
