Goa govt has no plan to change MoI policy, says Laxmikant Parsekar


Panaji, August 12: Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar today told the Legislative Assembly that the state government has no plan to change the policy on Medium of Instruction (MoI) in schools.

"There is no such proposal presently under consideration of the government," Parsekar told the House in a written reply to a query by Congress MLA Vishwajit Rane.


To another question whether grants for English-medium schools would continue or not, the chief minister said the state would go by the resolution adopted in the State Cabinet on June 6, 2012.

The resolution copy, which is annexed with the reply, states that English-medium schools will continue to get grants. Bharatiya Bhasha Suraksha Manch (BBSM), an organisation, has begun agitation in the state demanding that the grants for English-medium schools be withdrawn.

The BBSM, which is headed by state RSS chief Subhash Velingkar, has said that they will oppose BJP during upcoming state assembly elections due early next year.
