Chennai: “The railway department should not play with the sentiments of the people of Tamil Nadu by trying to impose new and new forms of Hindi. The railway department should immediately remove such notice boards that impose Hindi wherever they are, including Tirupur,” said Ramadoss, founder of BAMA.
In this regard, he said on his Twitter page, “The name board of the Seva Kendra placed in front of the Seva Kendra at Tirupur Railway Station has been removed and instead of it, Sahayok is written in Hindi, English and Tamil languages. This blatant imposition of Hindi by the Central Government is reprehensible.
Notice boards should primarily be placed in Tamil, the local language, in places such as central government offices and public service stations, etc. In addition, you can keep it in English and Hindi.
However, at Tirupur Railway Station, the name board made up of the Tamil words ‘Seva Kendra’ has been removed and the Hindi word ‘Sahayok’ has been written in Tamil, English and Hindi. No one but those who know Hindi will understand it. This is a new type of Hindi stuffing.
The Railways should not play with the sentiments of the people of Tamilnadu by trying to impose new and new forms of Hindi. “The Railway Department should immediately remove such notice boards imposing Hindi wherever they are, including Tirupur,” he posted.
