In October 2022, the Madhya Pradesh government launched a pilot project of teaching undergraduate medicine (MBBS) in Hindi from this academic session 2022-23 in 13 state government medical colleges.

Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan recently announced that students at MP schools will be taught excerpts from vedas, Ramayana, Mahabharata. The announcement was made by the CM during the 'Sughosh Darshan' programme organized by Vidya Bharti in Bhopal on the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. Considering the New National Education Policy (NEP 2020) talks about promoting regional languages, Madhya Pradesh has taken steps to impart engineering and MBBS courses in Hindi, the chief minister said.

"The Ramayan, the Mahabharat, the Vedas, the Upnishads, the Bhagwad Gita are our invaluable scriptures. These texts have the ability to make a human being moral and complete. We will also (along with other subjects) teach these religious books in government schools. Why not study them?” The CM said.

Lauding the 16th-century bhakti poet Tulsidas for writing an epic like Ramcharitmanas, Chouhan said, “I bow to Tulsidas ji who gave us scriptures like (Tulsidas) Ramayan. People who insult these great men will not be tolerated. In Madhya Pradesh, we will make our children moral and ensure their all-round development by teaching these holy books.”

The chief minister also said, “Education has three objectives – to impart knowledge, to impart skills and to inculcate the values of citizenship. I am happy to say that Vidya Bharati has been working to fulfill all these three objectives since its inception.” “Today is the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. We all know that the British did not gift us this freedom on a platter. Thousands of revolutionaries offered their last drop of blood,” he added.
