So there is no rule that the answers should be in the language in which the question was asked by the member. The answers will be either in Hindi or in English only. The minister who has to give the answer may not understand the mother tongue of the MP who is asking the question. So he has to use either English or Hindi only. What is there in this to belittle the MP from TN. If the MP wanted a translated version of the reply will be made available to members. There is no problem with this. As a Tamilian, MP can speak Tamil but Jyothirdaditya answered in Hindi as he is not a Tamilian and he may not know Tamil. The MP can ask for translated version of the answer.
It so happens that as Hindi is one of the most common languages of this country, thanks to the bollywood movies, that many people prefer to speak in that. It is to be understood that it is a common language and it is not a national language that it is compulsory to speak in Hindi.
English is also a common language but it is not compulsory to speak in English in the parliament.
So I don't see any point of confusion or ambiguity in this.
Knowledge is power.

The Member of Parliament from Tamil Nadu asked a question in English to which Mr. Jyothiraditya Scindia, Civil Aviation Minister replied in Hindi. He should have replied in English. Mr. Scindia is an educated person and speaks English very well. We communicate with other people in the same language which they use. If a stranger asks us something in English, we also reply in English only. It will be considered an insult if we respond in some other language.
