Coimbatore: MDMK leader Vaiko on Sunday condemned Union home minister Amit Shah’s remarks over terming Hindi as the official language of the country.
In his statement, Vaiko said that during the recent All India Rajbasha conference in Varanasi, Amit Shah repeatedly called Hindi the official language of India. “Besides, Shah has said that not even a single document was in English in the home ministry as Hindi has been adopted as the language. This is against the constitution and attempt at abolishing all the 22 languages listed in the eighth schedule,” Vaiko said.
The leader further condemned the home ministry for sending all communications in Hindi to MPs from non – Hindi speaking states. Vaiko also urged the state government to send back all the communications sent from the home ministry in Hindi.TNN
