Chennai: The Tamil Nadu assembly on Tuesday unanimously passed a resolution against the imposition of Hindi in the State.

Addressing the State assembly after moving the resolution, Chief Minister M.K.Stalin said the recommendations submitted to the President by the Union Home Minister Amit Shah-led parliamentary committee on official language on September nine are against the State languages, including Tamil and also against the interest of the people who speak those languages.

All regional languages should be made official languages and Hindi should not be imposed on States that don’t speak Hindi. Those States should be allowed to continue with English, he said.

The House expressed concern that the recommendations of the Parliamentary committee now presented are against the two-language policy resolution passed by the Tamil Nadu assembly by `Anna’ (former Chief Minister C N Annadurai) and contrary to the promise made by then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, he said.

Stalin said our language policy is to oppose Hindi imposition, oppose NEET and New Education policy.

Paving way to make employment available only to those who know Hindi was against the Constitution and hence the President of India should not accept the recommendations of the Parliamentary committee, he added.
