Govt to enact law on use of Kannada in all fields: CM Bommai
Bengaluru, Nov 01, 2022: The state government has proposed to enact law on the use of Kannada language in all the fields.
Speaking after hoisting a Kannada flag on the occasion of 67th Kannada Rajyotsava at Sri Kanteerava Indoor Stadium organised by Department of School Education and Literacy and Comprehensive Education here on Tuesday, he said the state will enact a law by getting the bill passed in the coming session of the State Legislature on the use of Kannada in all fields.
“Let there be a free and frank discussion on the proposed legislation in public and the government is ready to accept all the suggestions with an open mind. Apart from passing legislation on the use of Kannada in all fields, one must get the feeling of living for the sake of this language,” he said.
Bommai said that 8,000 new classrooms are being constructed in one year.
“Since the formation of the state so many classrooms had never been built in a single year by any government in the past. No previous governments had given permission for building so many classrooms. If this work continues for the next three years there will be no shortage of classrooms in the State. This project has been taken up under the name of Viveka,” he said.
He said as many as 2.5 lakh government jobs are vacant and it will be filled up in the next two years.
Primary Education Minister B.C.Nagesh, MP P.C.Mohan, MLC Basavaraj Horatti, MLC Govindaraj and MLA Rizwan Arshad were present.
