Keeping the original Act intact, provide punishment for contravention : Bhasha Andolan to CM

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has ruined the essence of Orissa Official Language Act, 1954 by amending it twice in 2018 for the nefarious purpose. Section 4-A inserted into the Act is designed to undo the provisions of the original Act that, in the whole State of Orissa, for all and any official work the language shall be Oriya.

Bhasha Andolan Presidium has asked the Chief Minister to do away with this mischief and to amend the Act afresh to repel the notorious Section 4-A and to bring in new provisions to severely punish whosoever functionary fails to work in Oriya language and contravenes the Act.

Here is what the Presidium has told the CM:

  1. Mahodaya,

    Naveen Pattnaik and it’s bureaucracy merely playing with the people of Odisha.
    They are not interested to do any welfare or schemes which may benefit the
    people of Odisha in the long run.

    On the language front compulsory use of Odia language in Administration,judiciary&
    employment is still to be full filled.

    Our education system neglecting Odia language in such a way that thousands of
    non Odia bigots are being created out of Odia population. Odia language is still to be
    compulsory from primary to Intermediate/Graduation(Including CBSE,ICSE and state board syllabus).

    After getting classical language status in 2014,Odisha still to have a Central Institute of Classical Odia
    and Odia language University(budget allocation is not sufficient).

    Odisha administration neither got determination nor will to do any thing concrete for Odia language.
