The ruling Congress-NCP alliance in Maharashtra on Friday welcomed the Supreme Court's judgement of holding the DF government's decision of making Marathi language compulsory for standard five to ten in all the schools in the state.

State NCP spokesman Vasant Chavan said the Shiv Sena-BJP alliance which always spoke on expansion of the Marathi language failed to bring any law in this regard during its tenure.

The DF government has constituted a law for compulsory Marathi language in secondary schools to maintain the self-respect of the language, he said adding, this will ensure that every student in the state knows it.

State Congress spokesman Hussain Dalwai said the decision of making the Marathi language compulsory in the secondary school will help in its expansion over the English language. .
