The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India deplores the attitude and behaviour of the official of the Union ministry of AYUSH, asking those do not know Hindi leave the virtual training of master trainers organised by the ministry. He wasin fact subjecting the Tamil-speaking participants to such humiliation.

The official has no right to insult representatives of the non-Hindi speaking states when the country has been following even today three language formula. Those who are in the high echelons of the Executive and powers should know that India is a country of wide diversity, languages and cultures. Those diversities must be kept in mind to safeguard the integrity of the country. Hindi and Hindutva are not India.

The Party urges upon the government to take appropriate action again the concerned officials.
