    Oriya is the main language of Odisha. Apart from Oriya, most of the people speak Bengali, Hindi, Telugu, Urdu, Santhali, and other local languages.
    Most of the people of southern districts, such as Ganjam, Gajapati, Malkangiri, Koraput, Sunabeda, Navrangpur, Rayagada, speak Telugu. whereas, some people of Northern districts speak Bengali and Urdu. There are many districts which people are tribe, where they speak their local language apart from Orissa.

    Other than the languages given in the option, Telugu is one of the major languages that people of Orissa do speak. Bengali is definitely in a close margin with Telugu. But there should not be any double opinion that Oriya is the most prominent language of our state.
