Hindi, a sakhi to all languages: Shah
New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday said that the progress of India is contained in the coordination of mother tongue and official language.
“When accepted the Constitution, we also accepted a decision on September 14, 1949 that this country’s ‘Rajbhasha’ will be Hindi and ‘Lipi’ will be Devanagri.
Along with Hindi, we also took a decision to accept regional languages,” said Shah on the occasion of Hindi Diwas.
“On the occasion of Hindi Diwas, I urge all the countrymen to take a pledge to progressively use the official language Hindi along with their mother tongue in basic works,” the Union Home Minister added. Shah expressed his happiness that the usage of Indian languages has increased in the state assemblies since 2014.
