Kokborok Choba, of 56 indigenous organizations of Tripura have expressed their concern over the recent state by Home Minister Amit Shah that the Devanagari script would be adopted for those languages in the region which do not have a script.
Roman Script for Kokborok Choba (RSKC) chairman Bikash Ray Debbarma while talking to Northeast Live, stated that ever since the adoption of Kokrborok as a state language in 1979, the indigenous populace has been opting for the usage of the Roman script for writing it. Debbarma said that the government needs to change its stand on the matter and give credence to using both Bengali and Roman scripts for writing the Kokborok language
.Debbarma also reacted to the proposed move to make Hindi compulsory in all schools, he said that it is essential that local tongues like Kokrborok and Bengali are made compulsory in schools of Tripura to preserve them for the next generations. He also said that making Hindi compulsory in the school curriculum would put an added burden on students.
Predominantly the Devanagari script is used for writing Hindi, Bhojpuri, Nepali, and others. For the Northeast, the Bodos of Assam has adopted the Devanagari script in its written form.
