    "Let every Indian first speak Hindi" than dream for it. Instead of throwing 40 /400 crores of money towards UN. try to build free Hindi speaking school on every angles of the country. shri. a man of dignity and knowledge 🙏👍

    India is a country having 29 states, every state has language and cultural differences, this country is called and referred as Hindstan because of religious values, Hindi is spoken by many not because its native language but people are forced and pushed to blindly to believe hindi as national language. we should kill these national parties, and their bullshit thinking of India governed from delhi, instead Every state should stop collecting CGST, so called national highways, infrastructures are all belong to one or other state, which should be taken care by respective state. there is no need central government concept instead let every state join decision making when it comes to national level decision, regarding national forces like army, airforce, navy, funding should be contributed by every state willingly and freely. kick out these brainless politicians and government officials those who think and force one language one place to represent india. Support only state level Political Parties for your own good so to avoid slavery in the name of India, stop praising one party or a person, begger or a high-level govt employee have same rights in india, PM should just represent india should not have power to make decisions on his own thinking or his political party.

    I go with shashi taroor. Because the ministers cannot speak english that doesn't mean that just for his speech we have to promote hindi at the UN Mrs. Swaraj if there are ministers from south I am damn sure that they will definitely deliver their message at the UN in English, and in India more than hindi people know english which is also an official language of the country. What can be done if the state people of north india don't know english. Almost 70% of the states of india knows english

    Instead of spending 400 crs on making a language official spoken in UN. Govt should focus on spending this money on more important challenges that india is facing today. We still backward in rural electrification, education, safety and security.
