Lucknow: An Uttar Pradesh minister’s statement that he could go abroad if he could not speak Hindi has caused controversy.
Speaking at a film event, Kannada actor Sudeep said, “Hindi is not the national language.” In response, Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn had a verbal clash on Twitter between the two respondents. Eventually the friendly gesture ended the conversation. In this situation, many Kannada and South Indian celebrities have expressed their support for actor Sudeep’s opinion. Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Pomma and former Chief Minister Chidramaiah expressed support for Sudeep.
In this context, Uttar Pradesh BJP leader and state minister Sanjay Nishad said in an interview on private television, “People in India should be obsessed with Hindi. Those who do not will be considered foreigners. If you can not speak Hindi, you can leave India and go to another country. “
