Unity in diversity is India's strength and any attempt at "language chauvinism" will boomerang, Telangana minister K T Rama Rao has said, joining the chorus from the south against Home Minister Amit Shah's pitch to propagate Hindi.


New Delhi, 10 April 2022

As per news report of NDTV, "Unity in diversity is our strength dear @AmitShah Ji. India is a union of states & a true 'Vasudhaika Kutumbam'. Why don't we let people of our great nation decide what to eat, what to wear, who to pray to and what language to speak! Language chauvinism/hegemony will boomerang," said Mr Rao, son of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao. "I am an Indian first, a proud Telugu & Telanganaite next. Can speak in my mother tongue Telugu, English, Hindi & a little bit of Urdu too. To impose Hindi & diss English will be a great disservice to the youngsters of this nation who have global aspirations," the Telangana Rashtra Samithi leader, popularly known as KTR, added.
