We had already reported that Union Home Minister and BJP top leader Amit Shah’s “One Nation One Language” in which Hindi supported was garnering adverse criticism across the borders of the country. Many regional political leaders perceived Amit Shah as he is deliberately pushing the Hindi over the regional languages.
As this seems to be on the verge like erupting volcano, Amit Shah finally took a step to respond to his statement of making Hindi as the preferred language. Union Home Minister Amit took his views to Twitter saying, “I never asked for imposing Hindi over other regional languages & had only requested for learning Hindi as the second language after one’s mother tongue. I myself come from a non-Hindi State of Gujarat. If some people want to do politics, it’s their choice”.
Amit Shah gathered huge criticism after stressing Hindi as the most spoken and used language. On to this DMK president, M.K. Stalin alleged that the Centre is forcing for “autocratic imposition of Hindi”.
Whereas, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said it is a plan to divert from realtime issues and his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee tweeted: “My best wishes to all on Hindi Diwas. We should respect all languages and cultures equally. We may learn many languages but we should never forget our mother-language.”
