In a letter to PM Modi, MK Stalin criticises "attempts to impose Hindi" in Tamil Nadu

The medium of teaching in technical and non-technical higher education institutions, including the IITs, should be Hindi in Hindi-speaking states, and the regional language in other regions of the nation, according to a recent recommendation from a parliamentary panel. Hindi should be one of the UN’s official languages, the panel further said.

“The number of people speaking languages other than Hindi is numerically more than Hindi-speaking people in the Indian Union. I’m sure you would appreciate that every language has its own speciality with its uniqueness and linguistic culture,” In the letter, Stalin stated.

Stalin further asked that efforts to impose Hindi in various ways, as suggested in the report, not be pursued and that a magnificent flame of Indian unification be maintained at a high altitude forever.

Udayanidhi Stalin, the DMK’s youth wing secretary and Stalin’s son, issued a warning on Saturday, threatening to organise a rally in Delhi against the BJP-led Centre if Hindi is imposed on the state.

“The approach of the Union government should be to included all languages, including Tamil, in the 8th Schedule, keeping in view scientific development and technological facilities and promote all languages and keep open avenues of progress in terms of education and employment equal to speakers of all languages,” added the chief minister of Tamil Nadu.

The Chepauk-Thiruvallikeni MP warned that the party will not stand by silently if the Modi-led Union government disregards the feelings of the populace while leading a large protest in Chennai near the historic Valluvar Kottam.
