Addressing the 7th Convocation of OP Jindal Global University in Haryana, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu said that the basic Education in the country should be taught in Indian languages only, sated an official release.

For this to happen, our institutions of higher learning must revamp their methods of teaching, give up business-as-usual approach and create rigorous academic standards," he urged.
