The long standing demand for official recognition to both Bhojpuri and Rajasthani has heightened in recent years.
Last year, Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje had flagged off a “Rajasthani Rath Yatra”, an initiative demanding that the language be accorded an official status.
As of now, the Eighth Schedule has 22 languages recognised under the Constitution.
