Punjabi Boli – Gurdas Mann wich Amit Shah Bolda

Since coming to power in 2014, the Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party government has frequently been accused of trying to impose Hindi on a country which has 22 official languages and thousands of unofficial ones. The latest fuel to the fire was home minister Amit Shah’s claim on ‘Hindi Diwas’ last week that only Hindi could unite the country.

The remarks riled non-Hindi speakers, especially those from the Southern states. Shah’s own BJP colleague, Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa, came out strongly against the suggestion, along with Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan and political parties in Tamil Nadu. DMK leader MK Stalin has even asked his party cadre to prepare for the next anti-Hindi agitation.
