The All India Official Language Conference was started today in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, by Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. During his address to the audience, Amit Shah stated that there is no conflict in the country between Hindi and local languages. Take the Swabhasha ahead this year, as it is the year of resolutions for Hindi lovers.
For us, the Amrit Mahotsav of Independence represents a year of determination: Amit Shah
“Amrit Mahotsav is an opportunity to encourage the younger generation by bringing them alive in the memories of our forebears who endured the tortures, supreme sacrifices, and sufferings that our forefathers endured,” Amit Shah remarked. For us, Amrit Mahotsav is a year of resolutions. This year, 130 million Indians must select how and where India will be when it celebrates 100 years of independence. What will India’s position in the globe be?
Rajbhasha and local languages should have precedence: Amit Shah
“Whether it is a question of education, whether it is a matter of culture, whether it is a matter of security, whether it is a matter of economic advancement, whether it is a matter of expanding production, where does India stand, and where does India stand in every field,” Amit Shah continued. This is the year to make a decision on where you want to go with your life. When our country celebrates 100 years of independence, the official language and all local languages should have such supremacy that no foreign language collaboration is required.
Amit Shah went on to say, “Because there were three pillars of freedom, Swaraj, Swadeshi, and Swabhasha, I believe this task should have been done right after independence. Swaraj was attained, but Swadeshi and Swabhasha were left behind.
CM Yogi had previously stated, “What was India’s name? There was a lack of faith in the minds of ordinary Indians seven years ago. On the international scene, India’s status was not in the form that it should have been. However, you have witnessed a changing India, this one new India, this Shreshtha Bharat, for the last seven and a half years.
