DMK youth wing chief and Minister for Youth Welfare and Sports Development Udhayanidhi Stalin on September 14 strongly condemned the assertion of Union Home Minister Amit Shah that Hindi is the uniting pressure of India and it’s empowering different regional languages.
In his message on social media platform X, Mr Udhayanidhi mentioned Hindi was spoken predominantly solely in 4 or 5 states within the nation and therefore the assertion of Mr Amit Shah was completely absurd.
“It is only another version of imposing Hindi under the guise of generating livelihood. While we are speaking Tamil here, Kerala speaks Malayalam. Where does Hindi merge with and empower us? Mr Amit Shah should stop oppressing non-Hindi languages by calling them just regional languages,” he added.
