Chandigarh: Punjab Assembly Speaker
Charanjit Singh Atwal on Monday asked the members of the House to
conduct all proceedings in the session in Punjabi language.

"All members should ensure that Punjabi is used during
the proceedings of the assembly," the Speaker told the House.
During the previous tenure of SAD-BJP alliance
government, the Assembly had passed a unanimous resolution for
using Punjabi language in offices and other places.

The previous government supported by opposition Congress
had also sought from the Chandigarh administration to make use
of Punjabi language mandatory.
