The Chief Minister, Mr Digambar Kamat, today, assured to give all facilities to Roman script as enjoyed by Devnagiri, in an effort to help the development of Konkani language in the state. He also promised government help to all magazines published in Konkani.

The Chief Minister was speaking as the chief guest, at the one year celebration of the Konkani magazine `Jivit’ in his home town. Stating that Konkani language was the only identity of Goans, Mr Kamat opined that for Goa to progress, development of Konkani language was crucial. The Chief Minister also disclosed that he had put in motion the idea of setting up the `Tiatr Academy’.

For Konkani language to progress, Goans should stop fighting in the name of scripts and fight to get equal grants for Roman script writers and tiatrists, Deputy Speaker, Mr Mauvin Godinho reasoned.
Earlier the organizers released three Konkani books at the hands of the dignitaries and felicitated five prominent personalities who contributed for the growth of Konkani language.
