Bengaluru: BJP is fundamentally against Kannada language, says Kumaraswamy


Daijiworld Media Network – Bengaluru (MS)

Bengaluru, Jun 20: Former chief minister and JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy on Sunday June 20 expressed rage against BJP and Parliamentary Research and Training Institute for Democracy (PRIDE) for ignoring Kannada in the language training programme for MPs and officials. In a series of tweets, Kumaraswamy said that BJP was fundamentally against the Kannada language.

From June 22 onwards, PRIDE will organize 30 hours of virtual language classes for all MPs and government officials, where they will be trained in six foreign and six Indian languages. The languages selected are French, Portuguese, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, German, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu and Odiya.

Hitting out at BJP for ignoring Kannada, Kumaraswamy said, "PRIDE has ignored Kannada and has given priority to Gujarati, Marathi, Bengali, Odiya, Tamil and Telugu languages. This is the result of sending 25 MPs, who do not have any respect for Kannada language, to Lok Sabha from the state. The online training of these languages will start from June 22. MPs of various states, MLAs and officials will take part in this programme. French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish languages are being taught. Kannada should be included in this programme. Otherwise, all of us must boycott this.

"The centre neglects Kannada language each and every time. Only a few of us are speaking up against this. All should join hands against this attitude of the centre. We must stop crying and giving them hospitality. We should send a message that they will be in trouble if they forget Kannada. I have not seen a single BJP MP speaking against the negligent attitude of the central government against Kannada. By this people should understand that BJP is fundamentally against the Kannada language. If the state BJP leaders do not agree with my statement then let them set right this gross negligence by centre towards the Kannada language," he said.

"The proposal of higher education committee of restricting Kannada language study to just one year in the four year degree course according to national educational policy has disappointed Kannadigas. Study of Kannada language is not just a subject but a way to instill consciousness among the younger generation.

"It is unscientific to limit the study of language that is in our blood to just one year. Deputy chief minister Dr Ashwathnarayan has given clarification on this subject. According to the present study system there is no problem to study Kannada for two years. This has brought some solace. But if attempts are made to restrict it for one year, the consequences will be bad," he said.

    Hardly any benefit from learning Hindi... official state language coupled with English for communication with outsiders is enough... hindi is required only to communicate with illiterates from hindi belt rolling on streets of non-hindi states such as paani puri makers, vadapav, istri , watchmen etc. etc. Basic hindi vocabulary is required for talking to these illiterates... that can be picked up informally... all non-hindi states should switch to 2 language formula by removing hindi from curriculum... that can be substituted by other subject e.g. moral science or civic sense.

    Mr Roshan, it is better to be chauvinist of recognised official language of a state... better than being chauvinist of unrecognised local lingo mostly spoken, and if written, written in borrowed scripts and rotating in circle without moving forward... there is difference between ಅಧಿಕೃತ ಆಡಳಿತ ಭಾಷೆ and just an ಆಡುಭಾಷೆ....

    In such case there was no need to include both Marathi and Gujarati since both are akin. One who knows Marathi can understand Gujarati and vice-versa. Instead they should have opted for one of these two languages and included Kannada.

    The Context was in response to comment "We are not North Indians to follow Hindi" . Hopefully that makes some sense to the sane with some common sense. Why relate BR Shetty with me ? BR Shetty is BR Shetty ,I am Sense_shetty ..Sense for some ,Non sense for some .. Dont Compare me .. BTW I am not "against" or "for" any language ,caste ,religion ,culture and all these are nonsense.. which divides humans.. If you follow my comments carefully ,there is every chance that there will be shift in your consciousness . I dont spare anyone if I find something is wrong ..Be it BJP,congress,Ghulam or Bhakth..temple ,church or mosque etc .. I am not sure if majority of he others commentators have a neutral stance in their comments ..its always blindly tilted to one or the other side. Good luck people and wake up ..if possible

    ANOTHER EXTRACT --- HINDI BELT -- DR BR AMBEDKAR - In order to overcome this predicament, Ambedkar went on to propose that the north Indian states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Madhya Pradesh each be divided into a number of smaller units: three states in the case of UP, two in Bihar and two in Madhya Pradesh. But the States Reorganization Commission – despite dissent from one of its members, K.M. Pannikar – recommended the preservation of UP’s existing boundaries. Furthermore, the commission made an a priori case in favour of larger states, where possible, on economic grounds.

    MOST OF TAXES PAID GO TO THE SO CALLED BIMARU STATES - BIHAR - MP - UP _ RAJ - LAST 70 years -- HINDI BELT -- FROM HERE EMERGES ALSO -- AS DR AMBEDKAR HAS WRITTEN - AN EXTRACT OF HIS WRITINGS -- ‘There is a vast difference between the North and the South. The North is conservative. The South is progressive. The North is superstitious, the South is rational. The South is educationally forward, the North is educationally backward. The culture of the South is modern. The culture of the North is ancient.’ He went on to ask, How can the rule of the North be tolerated by the South?’

    kannadigas lack unity...Karnataka is by far the worst state in terms of unity of people compared to any other south Indian state..So no one gives a damn to Karnataka at national level..This disrespect to Kannada is good..so that the Kannadigas know that the third rated bacchali janara party is nowhere going to develop or benefit karnataka in anyway..they just lick the boots of their Delhi masters who are totally gujju and hindi chavunistic.

    BJP's main vote bank cowbelt iliterates who can only speak their mothertongue which is Hindi...since they have not gone to any schools, they do not know any other language... fekus can easily fool this monkeyvotebank... that is why BJP imposing hindi on non-hindi states so these illiterate can go any where in India and make a livelihood by making paanipuri on the roads... BJP and fekus want to impose hindi on all non-hindi states... they are against all states who have their own official languages which are non-hindi... so the non-hindi languages are weakened, then non-cowbelt culture and traditions will be weakened, finally non-hindu culture, traditions and religions will be weakened/marginalised...
