New Delhi: Minister of State for Home Nityanand Rai on Tuesday said that Centre will not impose Hindi over any state as languages have primacy in their respective states.
The Minister was responding to a question raised by a BJP member who asked Hindi to be declared a national language.
“The mother tongue of the state has its primacy. No step will be taken to impose Hindi,”he said.
He also said that there are many states where Hindi is written and spoken and others where there are Hindi users in good numbers.
