Uttar Pradesh Govt To Now Issue Press Releases In Sanskrit Also

To promote Sanskrit, the Uttar Pradesh government has decided to issue press releases in the ancient Indian language along with Hindi, English and Urdu, an official said on June 18, 2019.

The first Sanskrit press note was issued by the State information department on June 17, 2019.

As per senior officials of the department, all important government information and speeches of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will be released in Sanskrit too.

In this regard, the department would take the help of Lucknow-based Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan for translating the CMs speeches.

This is the first time that such a step is being taken. The Chief Ministers speech at a recent NITI Aayog meeting in New Delhi was released in Sanskrit and was well received. Now we plan to expand it further, the official said.

During a function held on June 17, 2019, the chief minister had said, Sanskrit is in the DNA of India, it is now limited to the work of priests.

Incidentally, there are 25 Sanskrit periodicals in Uttar Pradesh.
