The Bharatiya Janata Party has finally hit back to the criticism of Hindi Imposition by a large chunk of non-Hindi speakers and the opposition parties. Resorting to their ‘masterstroke’ strategy of whataboutery, the ruling party has accused former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and the Congress party of imposing democracy.
The official spokesperson of the Bharatiya Janata Party, Kangana Ranaut spoke to the Satire Express and criticized the first government of India and the leaders of imposing democracy.
“Did they ask us before imposing democracy? No! Why are they now crying for Hindi? Hindi is our national language. It is a piece of common knowledge for somebody who is uneducated and supports BJP. If you don’t have a problem with democracy imposition, then you should not make a hue and cry about Hindi imposition.”
The Hindi Imposition debate has been gaining traction across the country, especially in the southern part of India. The member of parliament from Bengaluru South, Tejasvi Surya raised the issue in the recently concluded parliament session. He said,
“It is unfortunate that we have to debate the importance of regional language after 70 years of independence. There is no need for a link language in the country anymore. The technological advancement has made it easy for us. Hindi Imposition is a reality and I categorically oppose this despite my party pushing for it.”
The Twitterati applauded the speech of Tejasvi Surya in the parliament. Many said that he is the one who will save the drowning democracy.
