JAMMU: Members of United Sikh Council on Wednesday held a strong protest at National Highway Digiana Ashram, here against the present government for non inclusion of Punjabi as a compulsory subject in schools.
Speaking during the protest, Kuldeep Singh, Chairman of the Council, deeply regretted the step motherly treatment meted out to the vast majority of people who have Punjabi as their mother tongue irrespective of their religions.
“By this attitude the present government is showing disrespect to Punjabi language by excluding it from the Education Department,” he said adding that it is high time that government should immediately notify the inclusion of Punjabi language as compulsory failing which the Sikh Council will be compelled to take this protest further in the days to come to its logical conclusion.
