Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan warned the officials of disciplinary action if refrained from preparing the files in the Malayalam language. The state government will initiate steps to make Malayalam an official language by creating awareness among the officials, informed the CM. He added that Malayalam will be taught to the migrant labourers who are interested to learn the language.

"Many officials prefer English language while preparing official files in English. It is a violation of the democratic rights of the public," noted the CM.

While inaugurating the celebrations of the official language week, Pinarayi Vijayan assured that the Malayalam University and the operations under Malayalam Mission will be expanded soon. Actions will be taken to obtain the privileges ensured to classical languages, added the CM.

Writers M Mukundan and Professor V Madhusoodanan Nair were honoured at a function presided over by Minister Antony Raju.
