Language row: SAD to approach Prime Minister

Chandigarh, September 10

The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) will take up the issue of restoration of Punjabi as an official language in Jammu and Kashmir with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, besides highlighting the issue in Parliament.

A decision to this effect was taken at a party meeting presided over by SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal. It was decided that the party would seek a change in the draft legislation seeking to make Urdu, Kashmiri, Dogri, Hindi and English official languages of Jamp;K by seeking inclusion of Punjabi in the list.

Badal said there was widespread resentment among Sikhs and Punjabis living in Jamp;K and elsewhere over the Jamp;K administration's move. — TNS
