A constant effort must be made to preserve the mother tongue and to renew and enrich it, he said, adding that centuries of cultural heritage and knowledge is preserved through this.
Vijayan also recalled the fight of brave people to protect their mother tongue and urged everyone to honour their efforts on the day.
