Aizawl, August 31 2012: The Government of Tripura in its cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Manik Sarkar recently, has made a historic decision to introduce Chakma language in Chakma script in primary schools of Tripura.

Imparting of education up to elementary stage in mother tongue is a national policy.

To begin with Chakma language subjects in its own scripts will be introduced in 58 primary schools in Chakma concentrated areas.

The movement for learning Chakma language in its own scripts has been going on for over two decades in Tripura.

In a move to protect and develop the Chakma and other tribal languages, the Tripura government has also decided to set up directorate named "Kok Borok and Minority Language Department Directorate" headed by an IAS officer to start teaching Chakma, now taught in Bengali script, in its own script.

The Chakma District Mizo National Front, Kamalanagar, Mizoram lauded the cabinet decision of the Tripura government and expresses its appreciation.

It hopes that the other States Government in the North East where there are Chakma concentrated areas shall follow the example of the Tripura Government.

In fact during the tenure of MNF Government in Chakma Autonomous District Council (CADC) from 2003-2008 Rasik Mohan Chakma, the then Chief Executive Member, CADC had taken up the matter with the Government of Tripura through some official correspondences and extended necessary help to the Chakmas of Tripura by imparting training to some educated youth.

in teaching and learning of Chakma language in its own script.

The Chakma District MNF hopes that the historic Cabinet decision shall be implemented without any further delay in true letter and spirit.
