Goa: Govt to write to Bombay HC seeking addition of Konkani for holding court proceedings


Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Friday said the state government will write to the Bombay High Court seeking the addition of Konkani language as official language to conduct court proceedings. 

Sawant said, “The Bombay High Court branch in Goa functions only in English but it should be both English and Konkani”.

He further said, “When we go to the judiciary to seek justice, it will be our endeavour to ensure that it should function in English as well as in Konkani. We will write to the High Court.”

“Promoting Hindi will not only make India even more united in its diversity but will also help the country to emerge as Akhand Bharat,” said Sawant in his address at the Bhasha Sahodari International Hindi conference (8th International Hindi Conference) at the Institute Menezes Braganza of Panaji.

“For the dream of unity in diversity and Akhand Bharat, it is important to promote Hindi. We will do everything to promote Hindi in Goa and give equal importance to the regional languages,” he added further.

Konkani is the state’s official language.
