Congress: If the government comes to the center, it will give the status of classical language to 'Marathi', Congress's big announcement









New Delhi, Leading News Service: Congress has made a big announcement that 'Marathi' language will be given the status of classical language if the India Alliance government comes to the country. Earlier, twice in a week, the Congress had asked why the central government did not grant the status of classical language to Marathi language. After that, Congress has made a big announcement today (13th) when the fourth phase of voting for the Lok Sabha elections is going on.

Why didn't the Modi government give the status of classical language to Marathi language?

In the last ten years, the demand to give the status of classical language to the 'Marathi' language is pending with the central government, why did the central government under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi not give the status of classical language to the Marathi language? Congress asked this question twice in the backdrop of Lok Sabha elections. The issue of giving the status of classical language to Marathi language will be important in Maharashtra. On this occasion, Congress has tried to touch the Marathi identity.

With the advent of the 'India' coalition government, 'Marathi' was given the status of a classic Indian language

Congress media general secretary Jairam Ramesh posted in this regard on X and said, 'If the India-led government comes to the country, Marathi language will be given the status of classical language'. Jairam Ramesh said, “Tamil, Sanskrit, Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam and Odia languages ​​were given the status of classic Indian languages ​​when Dr. Manmohan Singh was Prime Minister. On July 11, 2014, the then Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Prithviraj Chavan, demanded that Marathi be declared as a classical Indian language. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has not done anything on this for ten years. The Congress party is promising that Marathi will be declared as a classical Indian language as soon as the India Alliance government is formed in the country.”

  • Tamil, Sanskrit, Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam and Odia were given the status of classical Indian languages ​​when Dr. Manmohan Singh was Prime Minister in the Congress government.
  • On July 11, 2014, the then Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Prithviraj Chavan, demanded that Marathi be declared a classical Indian language
