Backdoor tactics can’t be tolerated: Kumaraswamy on ‘Dahi’ row

Former Karnataka Chief Minister and Janata Dal (Secular) leader HD Kumaraswamy has objected to the use of word ‘dahi’ being used on packets of Nandini curd sold in the State and that Hindi should not be imposed on a product manufactured in Karnataka. HD Kumaraswamy said that “back-door tactics” of imposing Hindi cannot be accepted. Kumaraswamy in a series of tweets said “Knowing that Kannadigas are against the imposition of Hindi, it is wrong for the Food Safety and Quality Authority of India to ask Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF) to print Hindi ‘dahi’ on the Nandini Probiotic yoghurt pocket.”
