In order to promote the Sanskrit language, the state government of Gujarat has decided to form the Sanskrit Bhasha Vikas Board, announced state education minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama at an event held at the Gujarat University. There was a mixed response to this decision; some have criticised and questioned the intention behind such a move while academicians have welcomed it.
