Your Say: No English Vinglish, ONLY Hindi, says Mulayam

Last updated on: November 18, 2013 15:20 IST

Members of Parliament should be banned from speaking in English in Parliament, believes Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav has said.

"There should be a ban on English address in Parliament. Countries which use their mother tongue are more developed. It's the need of the hour to promote Hindi," Yadav said while addressing a function in Etawah on Saturday.

"The leaders of the country have a double character as far as Hindi is concerned. They ask for votes in Hindi but give their address in Parliament in English. This should be stopped," he said, clarifying that he was not against the English language per se.

Yadav said people living in different regions should also try to promote Hindi, apart from their regional languages.
