Hindi strengthens democracy, Amit Shah says, citing Savarkar

Vinayak Damodar ‘Veer’ Savarkar, Shah said, was known in the country for his works, and respected for the promotion of the Hindi language

Union Home Minister remarked today that people should take pride in speaking Hindi, as he addressed the Akhil Bharatiya Rajbhasha Sammelan on the second and final day of his visit to Varanasi in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh. Shah also laid out a plan of ‘vikas‘ for the next 35 years, for which he said it was essential that the BJP win the coming Uttar Pradesh Assembly election.

Shah, who will leave for from Varanasi, praised Hindu Mahasabha founder for the historic personality’s efforts towards promoting Hindi.

“Time has come to take pride in speaking Hindi,” the union home minister said, adding that parents should talk to children in their native tongue as “original thoughts come from our own language”. The BJP leader further said that the “inferiority complex” of Hindi speakers, which was an effect of British rule, should be brought to an end.

Shah said that the country “lagged behind” because researches are conducted in a foreign language. “However, the new National Education Policy lays emphasis on official language and language. Also, the history of every state should be translated into the official language (of Hindi),” Shah said.

Vinayak Damodar ‘Veer’ Savarkar, Shah said, was known in the country for his works, and respected for the promotion of the Hindi language. 

Yesterday, Shah had said every single BJP worker should try to get votes from at least three families each. In Varanasi, the union home minister checked the groundwork for the assembly election in Uttar Pradesh early next year. He said a win in Uttar Pradesh “will open the doors to 2024”, referring to the next general election. 

Shah, who was BJP national chief before he was made home minister, shared the stage with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath before they interacted with party workers and leaders in Varanasi, which is also the Lok Sabha constituency of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The home minister’s visit to the politically significant Uttar Pradesh comes as the ruling BJP prepares for next year’s assembly elections in the state, likely to be held in February-March. In 2017, the party returned to power after several years, winning 312 of the state’s 403 assembly constituencies. It unseated the then ruling Samajwadi Party, which bagged only 47 seats.
