Forum To Oppose English Medium of Instruction

Barely two days after a massive crowd gathered at Azad Maidan, Panjim to demand that the government provide grants to schools imparting primary education in English medium, a new forum was launched on Wednesday to oppose this demand.
Bharatiya Bhasha Suraksha Manch (BBSM) which has the backing of Goa’s second chief minister Shashikala Kakodkar while demanding that grants be provided only to schools imparting primary education in regional languages, namely Konkani and Marathi, also demanded Education Minister Babush Monserrate’s resignation for participating in the rally supporting English.

Briefing media persons, Shashikala Kakodkar said the BBSM will launch a state wide agitation pressing for Konkani and Marathi as medium of instruction and termed the demand for English as a medium of instruction as an attempt to annihilate Goa’s culture and delink the state from the national mainstream.
