BJP fetish for English

contrary to rss efforts

Rashtriya-Swayamsevak-SanghTHE Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh leadership is one of the biggest votaries for the propagation of Hindi language. Now that they are de facto rulers of the country, they have moved softly but surely towards propagating Hindi. It has been observed that hoardings and standees outside the venue at government functions are being erected in Hindi language. Government officials are conducting the proceedings in Hindi except for those who are not from the Hindi belt. The proceedings of the 12th Civil Services day on April 21 were conducted all in Hindi. Even Cabinet Secretary PK Sinha spoke in Hindi at the function. All films shown at the function were in Hindi. Furthermore, all central ministries and public undertakings have started replying to RTIs in Hindi language. But there is an inherent dichotomoy, The BJP top leadership has a fetish for English language. Look at the top leadership starting from Arun Jaitley, Piyush Goyal, Nirmala Sitaraman, Smriti Irani, Ravishanker Prasad, Suresh Prabhu, Anant Kumar, MJ Akbar, DV Sadanand Gowda, Hardeep Singh Puri and Jayant Sinha; they all speak and write in English and it is they who command the party’s policies. This only reflects the diversity among politics and politicians. Even though the RSS is focused on implementing the mother tongue (read Hindi), constraints of a different states and regions are yet to be overcome. gfiles end logo
