Indian,7 Nepalese Girls Held Captive In Kenya Rescued: Sushma Swaraj

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Friday called on Indonesian Vice-President Muhammad Jusuf Kalla and held talks with her counterpart to discuss ways to strengthen the strategic partnership between the two nations. It is also important to note that all the nations have to bear the expense of making Hindi the official language of India.

The Congress MP and former United Nations official had intervened during Question Hour after Sushma said the government was ready to spend "any amount" to make Hindi an official language at the UN. We are working on it, we are making attempts to get the support of countries like Fiji, Mauritius, Surinam... where people of Indian origin are there.

Tharoor, the former Under-Secretary-General at the United Nations, questioned the need to push for Hindi which is not even India's national language.

To this Swaraj said that the government is ready to pay "even Rs. 400 crore if required" but the world body's rules do not allow to do so.

She said that if the rules so permitted, the Indian government is ready to bear the entire expense.

He pointed out that Hindi was India's official, not national, language. She added, money would, however, not serve the objective.

He further added that any future Foreign Ministers and Prime Ministers who did not prefer to communicate in Hindi, would be put in a hard spot and that would be unfair. While the PM or foreign minister were free to speak in Hindi and take pride in it if they wanted to, Tharoor said there was no need to impose the language on future leaders who may represent non-Hindi speaking states.

Several members of the treasury benches protested after Tharoor finished his statement.

As Swaraj and Tharoor traded barbs, once again it is clear that in a country where every state has its own languages and dialects, promoting only Hindi at any worldwide podium might prove to be a "costly" affair for the country.

Currently, there are 22 scheduled languages in India, and a large number of people speak in languages other than Hindi. "Sushma Ji and all those for Hindi...come learn the South Indians languages.they are handsome", the user tweeted.
