In a Rediff news report M. I. Khan reports from Bhubaneswar that the next like Orissa Chief minister Naveen Patnaik, Biju Janata Dal chief, does not speak Oriya! The story goes on to quote a former chief minister and senior Congress leader, Nandini Satpathy saying "If one remembers, veteran Congress leader from Tamil Nadu, the late Kamraj, without knowing to read and write Tamil, ran his state government successfully." I think Mr. Kamaraj did not complete primary school, but was he illiterate in Tamil too? Also, can a minister that does not speak the language of the people represent their interests?
