Dehradun: To promote Uttarakhand's local dialects, Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat on Thursday posted two tweets in Garhwali and asked people to communicate with him in local languages on social media.
Communicating in Garhwali and Kumaoni with the youth on social media will help future generations connect more deeply with their own dialects and with their own culture, an official release quoting him said.
Taking to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, to convey his message, the Chief Minister greeted people in Garhwali and said he will try to communicate with them in the dialect for its promotion.
