Sanskrit will be introduced in all Central govt

COIMBATORE: Before the end of its five-year term the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would have introduced Sanskrit as an elective language in all Union Government-run schools and colleges, senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy told newsmen in the city on Saturday.

He made this statement after taking part in a Samskrita Maha Sammelanam, organised by Samskrita Bharati Trust. Making it clear that the Union government would not compel the State governments to introduce Sanskrit in schools run by them, he said that those States would soon realise the importance of the language and introduce it in their schools.

‘Renaissance needed in India’

He expressed the confidence that Sanskrit would bring about the renaissance needed in India, as many regional languages originated from Sanskrit.

“Sanskrit would help in bridging gaps between many States. But, the regional political parties may not like it as “they rely on winning elections by dividing people,” Dr. Swamy said.

On its position for the 2016 Assembly election in the State, he said the BJP would take a stand at a national executive committee level.

He said Union Minister and former Army Chief General V.K. Singh’s remark on the killing of the two Dalit children in Faridabad, Haryana, earlier this week had been twisted by vested interests.

Says schools run by State government will follow suit on their own.
