Public Meeting of tiatrists and MLAs

Public Meeting of tiatrists and MLAs

Public Meeting of Tiatrists and MLAs Most of the present MLAs of Goa State assembly have been elected by a substantial number of voters who fully support Roman script for Konknni. Some of these MLAs have expressed their views in private on the issue of including Roman script in the Official Language Act 1987. So far only a few MLAs have publicly voiced their support to this issue.

Therefore, Tiatrists of Goa have now unanimously resolved at a meeting held at Margao today, to invite all the elected representatives of the Goa Legislative Assembly, to attend a public meeting to be convened on Tuesday 25th July 2006 at T. B. Cunha Hall Panaji at 10.30. a.m. to clarify their stand on the demand for amendment to the Official Language Act 1987 wherein the word "/Roman" in section 2(c) will be added. The meeting will be held in the presence of the Press and media.

Tiatrists are of the opinion that the presence of all MLAs is of utmost importance, considering the short time available to introduce a Bill to that effect before the end of the current Assembly Session itself.

Should they fail to avail this opportunity to attend this meet and express their views on this issue at this meeting it will be construed that they are not in favour of the amendment. According to the response of the MLAs, tiatrists will prepare their future course of action to meet their demand. Tiatrists have taken a pledge that they will fight tooth and nail till their demand for including Roman script in the Language Act is achieved.

Pratap Naik, S.J.
