Best way of propagating Hindi is to encourage its use instead of forcing others to adopt it: Rajya Sabha Chairman

Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu has said the best way of propagating Hindi is to encourage its use instead of forcing others to adopt it. Stating that knowing different languages is advantageous, he urged North Indians to learn any South Indian language of their choice as it would promote national unity and integration. He underscored the need to be proficient in mother tongue first as it would enable larning other languages easily.
Mr Naidu was presiding over a meeting of the Hindi Salahkar Samiti of the Rajya Sabha in New Delhi today. He expressed concern that the meeting of the Samiti was not held for the last three and half years. He directed that two meetings of the Samiti should be held every year. The last meeting of the Samiti was held in December 2014.
