We will make vernacular compulsory: NFP

We will make vernacular compulsory: NFP National Federation Party Leader Professor Biman Prasad says a NFP Government will make the teaching of formal i-Taukei and Hindi languages compulsory in all primary schools.

Professor Prasad in a statement today said that NFP will reverse the decision of the current FijiFirst Government to teach conversational I- Taukei and Hindi because it will destroy both languages in the medium to long-term.

He was reacting to the Attorney General and Minister for Education Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum’s announcement at last week’s Fiji Head Teachers Association that Government will ensure that the teaching of both conversational languages will be enforced in all schools in accordance with the 2013 Constitution.

“The current Government is hell-bent on destroying the formal languages of i-taukei and Hindi”. This is yet another example of the current Government riding roughshod over the people and blatantly abusing its mandate,” said Professor Prasad.

“The AG’s statement that contemporary i-taukei and conversational Hindi are languages is despicable. They are dialects or just derivatives, not used in religion, preaching or other religious functions, let alone any other occasion”.

“Legislating contemporary i-taukei and conversational Hindi is derogatory to the wide and formal use of both languages by communities”.

“Irrespective of it being legislated through Section 31(3) of the Constitution, we will ensure that our teachers and students are not subjected to teaching and learning contemporary i- taukei and conversational Hindi in schools,” he added.
