New Delhi: DMK Working President MK Stalin on Saturday launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleging that the PM has been "attempting to decimate the unity of the nation, ever since he assumed the highest office at the Centre".
Stalin registered his protest against the proposal of the parliamentary committee to make it mandatory for MPs and central ministers who know Hindi to use it as their official language.
President Pranab Mukherjee also assented the usage of Hindi in airport announcements, press news, and advertisements.
"Going a step further, the PM has now made Hindi a compulsory subject at CBSE-affiliated schools," Stalin said. From primary schools to Parliament, he said, "The BJP government is betraying the non-Hindi speaking residents, including te future genrations."
Condemning what he refers to as "the imposition of Hindi", Stalin reminded the central government of the long history of the Dravidian Movement which fought against the imposition of Hindi language.
"We have martyrs who laid their life to protect the native languages," he said, urging the central government "not to seed the emergence of a third generation anti-Hindi imposition protest."(Get detailed and live results of each and every seat of the state Assemblies in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Telangana, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram to know which candidate/party is leading or trailing and to know who has won and who has lost and by what margin.
