Nand Kumar Sai, Chairman, National Commission for Schedule Tribe

National Commission for Schedule Tribe (NCST) Chairman demanded that the government should make Sanskrit as an official language as it is considered as a root language for other means of communication in India.

“It’s good that you want to learn English. But you should also learn and respect your own languages which is Sanskrit. Sanskrit is complete language, while English lacks logic”, said Nand Kumar Sai.

He claimed, “Sanskrit is close to Tamil, Karnataka, Telugu, Malayalam and even Hindi. Therefore, it should be made compulsory for everyone. Also, people in other regions won’t oppose it”.

National Education Policy (NEP) drafts the three language formula has been modified by recommending Hindi language in all government schools.

NCST has been formed by the government of India as certain communities in the country were suffering from extreme social, educational and economic backwardness. This committee has been formed as per provisions contained in Clause 1 of Article 341 and 342 of the Indian constitution. 

The centre has dropped the controversial provision of teaching Hindi in the revised draft education policy due to intense protests from Tamil Nadu including other states. The Centre’s Citizenship Amendment Bill proposes to give citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, Buddhists, Jains and Parsis from Muslim-majority Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan is not supported by the chairman of NCST. “Already a lot of migrants have entered the Northeast. The Bill will jeopardize the interests of our own people” he said.
