Former CM of Karnataka and JDS leader HD Kumarswamy opposed hindi diwas being celebrated in the country .
Taking a dig at Hindi Diwas, former chief minister and JDS leader, HD Kumaraswamy on Monday said that he would strongly oppose the imposition of Hindi on non-Hindi speaking communities and states in the country.

In twitter Kumaraswamy further said that Hindi was never a national language and it will never be one. “Our Constitution has given the same status to all languages. Hence, people who are sitting in Delhi should not think otherwise. Therefore, the idea of celebrating Hindi Diwas is nothing but a soft way of imposing Hindi as the national language”he quoted.
