Speaking to the media, CM Majhi stated that he has mandated all documents be presented to him in Odia. He emphasized that priority will be given to the geographical and cultural progress of Odisha, as well as the establishment, growth, preservation, and promotion of 'Odia Asmita.'

Key points from his statement included plans to reorganize and enhance the efficiency of three academies: literature, music and drama, and Lalit Kala Akademi. Additionally, the Odissi Research Center will be made operational.

Qualitative research on ‘Odia Asmita’ will be promoted, along with efforts to increase reading habits among the people of Odisha and to make the library movement widespread and systematic.

Arrangements will be made for the use of modern, simple, and accessible technology in the field of language, said Majhi. 

An Odia Asmita Bhawan will also be set up, a Language Commission will be established, and government work will be conducted in the Odia language. The 'Odisha Official Language Act' will be amended if necessary to broaden the use of the Odia language at the government level. The Odia Bhasa Pratisthana will be reorganized.
