National Conference Provincial Vice President Mr Gurdeep Singh Sasan today welcomed the statement of the party President Dr Farooq Abdullah in the Lok Sabha with regard to inclusion of the Punjabi as one of the official languages of Jammu and Kashmir.
In a statement, Mr Sasan said Dr Farooq Abdullah has represented the right thinking view of the country and assailed the attempts of undermining Punjabi, a most loved and spoken language of millions across the world. He said the statement of the visionary leader Dr Abdullah evoked immense response by the parliamentarians.
He described non-inclusion of Punjabi as Jammu and Kashmir’s official language is a conspiracy that will be exposed at the right time. He hoped the people will unitedly fight for a rightful place to Punjabi as per their wishes and aspirations.
Mr Sasan urged the administration to repeal the list of the official languages of Jammu and Kashmir and issue a fresh notification which includes Punjabi as one of the official languages. This is the least the government can do for assuaging hurt sentiments of millions, he added.
