GOA: The newly elected president of Konkani Bhasha Mandal (KBM) Anwesha Singbal on Tuesday pointed to the lack of politics will as the major stumbling block towards Konkani’s development, even as she stressed that the watchdog role the organisation played since its inception to protect the interests of the language wouldn’t be compromised under her leadership.
“There’s absolutely no political willingness, either with regard to the Konkani language or education,” Singbal told. “And I am talking not just about Konkani education. Even with regards to overall education, the focus, priority and determination is sadly lacking. For this government, the priority lies in roads, buildings and bridges, not in language and human resource.”
