Height of Appeasement by Soren Government, Hindi and Sanskrit Excluded But Urdu Finds Place In Jharkhand Job Recruitment Exams

 

"BJP spokesperson Pratul Shahdeo said that this is not just an insult to the official language, but it is a decision affecting the future of lakhs of students. He asked the State Government that since when did Urdu become the tribal language of Jharkhand? If Urdu is included under the regional language, why have Magahi, Bhojpuri, Maithili and Angika not been included along with the most spoken language Hindi? This decision of the State Government has been taken due to anti-majority and polarisation of minority voters"

In a decision related to the appointment in the State, the Hemant Soren cabinet has approved the proposal for the formation of new appointment rules. Under this, for the job in Jharkhand, now only the tenth and twelfth from the school of the State will be mandatory. In the same manual, the State cabinet has approved the proposal to remove Hindi and Sanskrit from the list of main languages of the candidates in the examinations conducted for government jobs, bypassing many regional languages. At the same time, Urdu has been kept unchanged along with the tribal language. Twelve languages have been prescribed under this proposal. These include Urdu, Santhali, Bangla, Mundari, Ho, Khadia, Kuduk, Khota, Nagpuri, Oriya, Panch Parganiya and Kurmali.
According to the State Government, Hindi and Sanskrit are not tribal or regional languages in the entire State, so they have been removed. Despite Urdu not being there in the category of tribal language, it has been included. Along with this, Magahi, Maithili, Bhojpuri and Angika are also spoken in many places in the State, despite this, these languages have not been included.


After this decision of the State Government, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has accused the national language Hindi and the world's oldest language Sanskrit of insulting and adopting a policy of appeasement.


BJP spokesperson Pratul Shahdeo said that this is not just an insult to the official language, but it is a decision affecting the future of lakhs of students. He asked the State Government that since when did Urdu become the tribal language of Jharkhand? If Urdu is included under the regional language, why have Magahi, Bhojpuri, Maithili and Angika not been included along with the most spoken language Hindi? This decision of the State Government has been taken due to anti-majority and polarisation of minority voters.


If we talk about regional languages, then Magahi, Bhojpuri, Maithili and Angika languages are spoken in many areas of Jharkhand adjoining Bihar like Palamu, Garhwa, Chatra, Sahebganj, Godda, Hazaribagh. But the Jharkhand government did not consider it appropriate to include them in its list. At the same time, Bangla and Oriya languages have got their place on the list.


If we look at another figure, about 62% of the people in Jharkhand are Hindi speaking while only about 5% of people use the Urdu language. In such a situation, there is no concrete reason to include the name of the Hindi language in the list. On the other hand, if we talk about the figures of Magahi and Bhojpuri, then about 20 lakh people of the State speak and understand Bhojpuri and about 8 lakh people speak and understand Bhojpuri, which is much more than those who speak many other languages.


After this decision of the Jharkhand Government, there is an estimate that it will affect more than 30 lakh people of the State.
Pratul Shahdev said that earlier subjects like Hindi, Sanskrit and Urdu were also included. Still, the new policy kept Urdu but left out Hindi and Sanskrit. Not only this, many people speak Bhojpuri in districts like Palamu and Garhwa. These languages are also not included in the list of regional languages. After this decision, the residents of these districts will not appear in the examination conducted for Upgrade 3 and 4 posts.


The previous Raghuvar government approved the Bihar State Language (Jharkhand Amendment) Ordinance, 2018, in the cabinet meeting on March 21, 2018. Earlier, 12 languages had already been given the status of second official language in Jharkhand, after which the State Government had agreed to declare Magahi, Bhojpuri, Maithili and Angika as second languages.


After this decision of the Jharkhand Government, memorandums are being submitted to the Chief Minister at many places across the State. The demand for the inclusion of other regional languages , including Hindi and Sanskrit, is in the list has also arisen.
