Ban English in Parliament: Mulayam Singh Yadav

Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav has said the Members of Parliament should be banned from addressing the House in English. "Countries which use their mother tongues are more developed. It's the need of the hour to promote Hindi," Yadav said at a function in Etawah on Saturday night. He was addressing a programme organised to felicitate persons who have been promoting the use of Hindi.

"The leaders of the country have double character as far as Hindi is concerned. They ask for vote in Hindi but address the Parliament in English. This should be stopped," he said, clarifying that he had nothing against the English language. Yadav said people should try to promote Hindi apart from their regional languages.
