Speaking at an event in Delhi a few weeks ago, BJP senior leader and Union Home Minister Amit Shah said, “Hindi should be accepted as an alternative to English, not as a local language. When people of different language-speaking states interact with each other, it should be in the language of Hindi.” Said. Various political party leaders have condemned Minister Amit Shah’s comments.
In this context, today in Coimbatore district, Tamil Nadu BJP leader K. Annamalai spoke to reporters:
The firm position of the BJP cannot accept the Hindi dump in Tamil Nadu. This is the position of the party, rather than what Annamalai has said. Annamalai is not an individual; I have no right to say that. The party’s position is that Hindi cannot be imposed in Tamil Nadu. It is a pleasure to learn Hindi voluntarily. I am also learning Hindi. But you can’t force anyone to read Hindi.
Thus he said.
Speaking at the recent Tughlaq magazine annual function, Kurumurthy said he did not like Annamalai’s statement that he would oppose the dumping of Hindi in Tamil Nadu and that the BJP should not make this mistake and that the central government had failed in this matter.
In retaliation for Tughlaq’s editor Kurumurthy, political observers said at a press conference today that Annamalai had said that the Tamil Nadu BJP would never allow the dumping of Hindi. Meanwhile, Annamalai’s continued comments against Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s comments on the Hindi language issue have caused discontent among senior BJP leaders.
