Kamtapuri Academy gets an office in Jalpaiguri
An office of the Kamtapuri Bhasa Academy was opened in Jalpaiguri on February 22 to work for the conservation and development of the language.
“During the erstwhile Left rule, people had laid lives while organising a movement over the demand for recognition of Kamtapuri language. But it is chief minister Mamata Banerjee who has formed the academy to recognise the movement and the contribution of those people,” state tourism minister said after he inaugurated the office.
The government is moving towards introducing Kantapuri language at primary level in schools. The work for a grammar book for the language is in progress.
