DMK chief M. Karunanidhi on Thursday condemned the MHA order for priority to Hindi on official social media interactions and advised the prime minister to focus on development agenda.
"No one can deny it's a beginning to impose Hindi against one's wish. This would be seen as an attempt to treat non-Hindi speakers as second class citizens," Karunanidhi told.
"All well-wishers want Modi to focus on economic and social development... Language battlefields have not yet dried. History has recorded anti-Hindi agitation. Can we forget Nehru's assurance that English would be official language as long as non-Hindi speakers want," Karunanidhi said.
Karunanidhi is the first to attack the Centre over its order promoting Hindi.
