In a dig at BJP President Rajnath Singh, the Congress on Monday asked what language he would speak during his current visit to the US.

"The BJP President should make it clear whether in America he would talk in Hindi or Awadhi or English. He made comments here that English has destroyed Indian culture. Such narrow vision, such closed ideology, now what he will achieve in the US only time will tell," Congress leader and
Information & Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari told reporters.

While speaking at a function in Delhi, Singh had reportedly expressed concern that the widespread use of English language in the country had resulted in the loss of 'our language and culture' as hardly anyone speaks in Sanskrit now.
