In a report by ANI, Venkaiah Naidu said,”Hindi is our national language and it is impossible for India to progress without Hindi. It is unfortunate that everyone is after English medium; I am against Britishers but not their language. We should learn all language, but by learning English our mindset is also changing, this is wrong, this is against the interest of the nation.” He added that it was necessary for people to learn their mother language as the dominance of English medium has shadowed their cultural heritage.

Venkaiah Naidu said,”Since the majority of the population speaks Hindi, it is necessary to learn Hindi, but before that, we need to learn our mother language.” The comments by the minister come after the expressed by the people, especially in the southern states over the usage of Hindi language.

    Tamil is older than Sanskrit and it is a classical language that is still used a large section of Indians, Sanskrit is a dead language. Venkaiah Naidu is a slave of the Aryans. I am a proud Dravidian, descendant of Ravana and Mahabali. Venkaiah is Vibeeshana. Promote Tamil just as you are promoting Sanskrit if not even more. Do you have the guts Vibeeshana? By the way I want to know whether you will call me anti Indian since I am a descendant of Ravana?
