SuN Sir, it is fine. Am sorry for the word. Now Saji Sir, I think you have got everything wrong. Kindly note that the Dravidian style of politics may have its flaws. But it has several advantages too.
Now, as you and Mohan Sir are trying to point out, my support for the DMK is not blind support. Yes. They were also corrupt. But the so-called national party, the BJP is as corrupt or if not more corrupt when compared to even the Congress. For example, Saji Sir, can you please tell me the bank account from which an entire lot of money was transferred to give Rs.100 crores to each Congress MLA to switch sides so that the most corrupt Yeddy can be back in power/
Now, the issue of Hindi imposition. Yes. It is true that Keralites or Tamils or the Telgu people or any other State, go on to speak Hindi whenever and wherever they are required to. But forcing people to learn a language is atrocious. For example, do you know that the Hindi Prachar Sabha branches in the whole of Tamil Nadu, have the maximum enrolment in terms of eager Hindi speakers? Did the DMK or the AIADMK not support such a move? And you are trying to say that the BJP wants to promote Hindi as if speaking it is the only criteria for being "Indian". This is not true at all. I do beg to differ with you and let that remain where it is.
The BJP is the worst communal cancer in India. I really do not know how you and other Members continue to support this cancer. They have successfully divided the nation. The State BJP leaders are the worst of leaders you can find anywhere. They are all absolute distilled idiots.
The corrupted CM wants to give all Government contracts only to his relatives and indulge in massive corruption. The AIADMK is the worst corrupted party of India. It still is.
Now, coming back to the DMK, do you know that it was the same Karunanidhi who brought in the 69% reservation for the other backward classes and the backward classes and the SC/ST. I may be a Brahmin by birth, but I believe in a society where everyone gets an opportunity to study well. And to her credit, the imperious and corrupt Jayalalitha gave legal protection to this 69% reservation. I do not know if you have read any book on the economic impact of this policy. Please do read at least the articles. When I go to Chennai, I will get you a list of some books. I do not have access to them because I cannot travel now due to health reasons.
The entire State has developed. Karunanidhi did not stop here. He developed several industrial estates like the Sriperambadur and the Oragadam industrial estates near Chennai. What were once sleepy villages are now part of Chennai city literally, as the Government aims at expanding the city to 100 kilometers in all three directions. (along the sea coast the development cannot happen in a big way, due to the environmental factors. Yet, this area is also developing). Now, what happens when people are educated? The hundreds of thousands of diploma holders and engineering graduates have been employed in the industrial estates and in the SEZs like the Mahindra World City and the Tada SEZ.
The cumulative employment, that is, both direct and indirect, is a cool 15 lakh people. That is, families. And then there has been industrial development at Kanchipuram as well. Yes. Do you know that the DMK was less corrupt than the AIADMK, as the latter has looted around one lakh crores?
Hindi imposition is a big reality. I really do not remember which Kerala Chief Minister. The Hindi fanatic Mulayam Singh Yadav, when he was the Union Minister, wrote a letter to the Kerala CM in Hindi? Do you know what happened? The Kerala CM replied in Malayalam.
Do you know that is a true story from Bangalore? A stupid IT guy from UP, who lived ( I do not know if he still lives there) had ordered something from some nearby restaurant at well after 10 PM. The poor guy as a bit late. The IT fellow blasted the poor boy in Hindi and talked nonsense against the Kannada language, as the boy did not understand Hindi. The Swiggy boy complained to his boss, who filed a case in the court. The next day, the Kannada associations took to the streets. The IT fellow was arrested. Within a few months, this became a prestige issue.
Hindi as a link language is different from being the sole language. The BJP wants Hind, Hindutwa, and the so-called Hindustan. It can never succeed. Saji Sir and others are free to have their own views. But we will resist Hindi imposition in every form. Please do note that I support the hapless Hindi guys who do all sorts of unskilled jobs in my own little way, with the help of Lions Club and so on. We are not against anyone. We welcome bullies from the BJP. But they need to behave and not try their dirty games here. We will thrash them thoroughly.
And remember, the BJP is now seen as a Brahmin party. It has received this perception because of one fellow called Gurumurty. The less said the better about this fellow. God save the nation from the BJP. We will, of course, save Tamil Nadu. And Saji Sir, my own cousins, who live in Nagpur for decades, writes in Hindi magazines!! To develop a taste for a lan guage should happen voluntarily. One cannot force it on people.
