CJI Bobde: Ambedkar had proposed Sanskrit as official language of India

Apr 14, 2021 22:55 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Chief Justice of India Sharad Bobde on Wednesday said Dr B R Ambedkar had proposed Sanskrit as the “official national language” of India as he understood the political and social issues well. 

Remembering Ambedkar on his 130th birth anniversary, the CJI said, Doctor Ambedkar was of the opinion that Tamil won’t be accepted in north India and Hindi won’t be accepted in south India. But Sanskrit won’t be opposed in either north India or south India. So, he had made this proposal which did not succeed.

Justice Bobde was speaking at the inaugural ceremony of the academic building of the Maharashtra National Law University at Nagpur.
