Chennai: Accusing the Centre and its institutions of imposing Hindi down our throats, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK President MK Stalin on Monday demanded the immediate withdrawal of a circular issued by the New India Assurance and an apology from its Chairperson Neerja Kapur.

In a lengthy tweet, Mr Stalin said while each and every citizen of India is contributing to its development, the Union Government and its institutions continue to give an undue and unfair advantage to Hindi, over other Indian languages in every possible way.

“Also, they are intent on spending their valuable resources on imposing Hindi down our throats, rather than for public welfare”, he charged, while stating that the latest in this list was the unjust circular issued by the New India Assurance and its Chairperson Neerja Kapur needs to apologise for the disrespect shown towards non-Hindi speakers of India and its non-Hindi speaking employees.

“Latest in this list is the unjust circular issued by @NewIndAssurance. It must be withdrawn with immediate effect and its Chairperson Neerja Kapur needs to apologise for the disrespect shown towards non-Hindi speakers of India and non-Hindi speaking employees of @NewIndAssurance”, Mr Stalin added.
