DMK to protest against Shah’s Hindi pitch on 20 September

Chennai: Upping the ante against ‘Hindi imposition,’ a high-level DMK meet on Monday announced protest demonstrations across Tamilnadu on 20 September to condemn Home Minister Amit Shah’s Hindi pitch.

The agitation was to nip in the bud the adverse effects of “Hindi imposition on ‘mother Tamil’ and the mother tongues of people of other (non-Hindi speaking) states,” a resolution adopted at the meet said.

Briefing reporters, DMK chief M K Stalin said the agitation was the first phase of protest on Hindi issue, and the further course of action will be decided on the basis of Central government’s response and consultations with like-minded parties.
