“I would like to re­mind the cen­tral govern­ment that the Dra­vid­ian move­ment has a long his­tory of spear­head­ing strug­gles against [the] im­po­si­tion of Hindi... I sternly urge the Cen­tre not to sow the seeds for the emer­gence of third gen­er­a­tion, anti-Hindi im­po­si­tion protests through... push­ing In­dia into be­com­ing Hin­dia”

M.K. STALIN, DMK chief and leader of the Op­po­si­tion in Tamil Nadu, is­sued a warn­ing to the BJP and Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi in a video mes­sage last week, de­scrib­ing the cen­tral govern­ment’s at­tempt to pro­mote the use of Hindi in na­tional in­sti­tu­tions, from Par­lia­ment to Air In­dia, as chau­vin­ism that would “dis­turb the peace and dam­age the unity of this coun­try”
