Though this was followed by controversy by the Bengal Chief Minister, Mamta Banerjee. Her concern was, particularly on the regional differences. Gujarati option is available as a medium for JEE ( Mains ) other than English and Hindi, excluding other regional languages.

Why injustice is being meted out to them?
