Kottayam: People should resist the central government’s attempt to impose Hindi and divide the country, said Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan here on Friday. He was speaking at the general session of Karshaka Sangham State Conference.
“Students learn Hindi in our state and it should continue. However, the central government should change its stance of imposing the language. Hindi is not a majority language in our country. It is not spoken in states such as Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra, Telangana and Puducherry”, said the chief minister.
“During the Covid period, lakhs of people starved in our country. But in Kerala, we brought food grains to every house through popular participation. Our country stands way ahead of neighbouring countries in case of starvation. This is insulting. However, Kerala is a model for the country in this case too”, he added.
