Jaya, BJP allies in TN oppose Centre's move on Hindi

by TIMES NOW 1:59 mins

The row over Centre's move to promote Hindi in social media and official work snowballed today with Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalitha and two of BJP's allies PMK and MDMK opposing it strongly while a union minister said a "wrong propaganda" was being made on the issue. DMK President M Karunanidhi, whose party had successfully led the anti-Hindi agitation in 1960s, had yesterday dubbed the move as a beginning of "imposition of Hindi" that would make non-Hindi speaking people second class citizens. Seeking to put a lid on the controversy over its two circulars, government today said use of Hindi on social media is only for states speaking the language and is not being imposed on non-Hindi-speaking states. The Home Ministry's official language department had issued a circular on May 27 asking all Ministries and Departments, public sector undertakings and banks to give prominence to Hindi on official accounts in social media. Another circular had announced prize money of Rs 2,000 to two employees who do their official work mostly in Hindi. Rs 1,200 and Rs 600 will be given to the second and third position holders respectively.
