Hindi speakers should give space to other languages: President Ram Nath Kovind

Hindi speakers should give space to other languages: President Ram Nath Kovind”

President Ram Nath Kovind on Thursday asked Hindi speakers to give space and respect to regional languages across the country.

He commenced his visit to the state by paying tributes at the Dr Ambedkar Mahasabha (Asthi Kalash) in Lucknow and was later felicitated at a Civic Reception in Lucknow on Thursday. He was received at the Chowdhary Charan Singh airport by Governor Ram Naik, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and other ministers.

This is the President's first visit to the state after assuming the top most constitutional post of the country.

He also stated that Uttar Pradesh is the "heartland" of India.

Many places in the state like Agra, Ayodhya, Varanasi, Sarnath and Fatehpur Sikri were living examples of communal harmony between the Hindus and the Muslims, he said.

"Lord Buddha had great attachment with Uttar Pradesh".

The President said he had chose to start travelling by visiting Uttar Pradesh first because his roots are here.

Kovind's observation came as he gave away the Rajbhasha Awards on the occasion of Hindi Diwas at a function.

"Non-Hindi speaking people desire that we (Hindi speaking people) give attention to their languages". The adoption of other languages and cultures will unite the people and the country, Kovind said. He cited contributions of Mahatma Gandhi, Subhash Chandra Bose and Kaka Kalelkar, all of whom weren't native Hindi speakers, but who supported the adoption of Hindi as the national language.

He said Hindi has the capacity to adopt from other Indian and foreign languages and dialect and this aspect should be taken full advantage of to popularise Hindi language.

The decision of using Hindi language as an official language of India was legalized by the Constitution of India on January 26, 1950.
