Inclusion of Kamtapuri language in 8th Schedule demanded

By Correspondent

DHUBRI, Dec 12 - The Kamtapur Progressive Party has again raised its demand for recognition of Kamtapuri language and warned the government to go on democratic protests, if the language is not included in the 8th Schedule.

While addressing a press conference, the party�s general secretary of the central committee, Uttam Kumar Roy, said that the BJP in its 2014 Lok Sabha election manifesto had promised the community for the national recognition of the language. �But after coming to power, the BJP-led Central government has forgotten what they promised,� said Roy.

The general secretary of the central committee also said that the party's central committee president, Atul Roy, with a team of representatives, met Lok Sabha MP SS Ahluwalia and many other national-level BJP leaders in this regard. �We want the State representatives to raise our issue in the Winter Session of the Parliament,� said Roy.
