On the occasion of Hindi Diwas today, Union Home Minister Amit Shah stressed how Hindi language has been a unifying force in India and emphasised that the country needs a language which can represent India in the world. He took to Twitter to appeal the nation to increase the usage of Hindi. Amit Shah's tweet comes on Hindi Diwas, which is celebrated on September 14 every year.

The day marks the significance of the Constituent Assembly's decision to adopt Hindi as the official language of India. Hindi, which is one of the 22 scheduled languages spoken in the country, is written in Devanagri script.

"Today, on the occassion of Hindi Diwas, I appeal all the citizens of India to increase the usage of our own mother tongues. Along with this, contribute to the fufillment of Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel's dream of 'one nation, one language' dream by enhancing the usage of Hindi language"- tweeted Shah. 

However, the draft of the new educational policy 2019 faced opposition as it has the provision of making Hindi language mandatory in all schools. In Tamil Nadu, the anti-Hindi protests were spearheaded by AIADMK and DMK. The then CM of Karnataka HD Kumaraswamy had also opposed the clause making Hindi as compulsory in all the schools.
