Shimla: The Himachal Pradesh assembly today passed a resolution recommending the inclusion of the state’s Pahari language in the constitution.
The resolution, moved by Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal, was passed by a voice vote in the house. “It’s spoken not only in the state but also in neighbouring states too. It’s rich in literature and its needs to be preserved,” Dhumal said.
“The Pahari language is present in 10 local dialects, including Sirmouri, Kulluvi, Kangri and Mahajavi,” he added.
