Commissioner for NRI Affairs, Eduardo Faleiro was the chief guest. Speaking on the occasion Faleiro stressed the need to bring together Konkani in Roman and devanagri script and asserted that the government should help and support both the scripts as they are keeping the language alive. However, Konkani should be taught in the devanagri script in shools he opined.
