Chennai, April 10 (BPNS)

Mouthpiece of the ruling DMK, ‘Murasoli’ has come out strongly against the statement of Union Home minister Amit Shah on April 7th that Hindi should be accepted as an alternative to English and not to local languages.

The mouthpiece in an article on Sunday said that the party patriarch and former Chief Minister, late M. Karunanidhi had as a 14-year-old student marched across the streets of Tiruvattur in Tamil Nadu against the then central government’s move to impose Hindi on the people of the state.

The article in the party organ is a direct call to the people of Tamil Nadu to strongly oppose the imposition of Hindi and asserted that there was no coward in the state and hinted that Hindi cannot be imposed on them.

The DMK mouthpiece also said that the people of Tamil Nadu still have not forgotten the rally taken out by Karunanidhi against Hindi and said,’ Do not forget it’.

Karunanidhi’s son and Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, M.K. Stalin has strongly come out against the Union home minister’s statement and said that it would destroy national integration.

Several political parties of Tamil Nadu including the opposition AIADMK have come out against the statement of Amit Shah that Hindi could replace English instead of the local language. Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) and Dravidar Kazhagam (DK) have announced that they would conduct protest marches across the state against the statement of the Union Home minister.

MDMK leader Vaiko has also said that the imposition of Hindi on the people of Tamil Nadu will never be accepted and reminded the power centres in New Delhi to remember the anti-Hindi agitations that had taken place in Tamil Nadu in earlier days.
