    Questions:
    • Should the central government funds be used for promoting one language?
    • Will this breed discontent in certain states?
    • Would it be better to leave Education under the State List, de facto, and de jure?
    • Will the Modi government lose appeal with some states if this move goes ahead?

    This will cause a lot of bad blood and all the goodwill will vanish in the hay.

    The East and the South will not accept it and it will lead to the rise of regionalism that has got blurred to a great extent since the last General Elections.

    Mamata Bannerjee, for one, whose stars are waning will get a second wind.

    Good move. This should be done especially in non-Hindi speaking states.

    Off late Tollywood movies are using Hindi Phrases in their songs more often these days.

    Hindi should be learnt as an additional language just like English, Native Languages must be given importance. Hindi must not replace the native language but it must be an additional language.

    Other than Tamil Nadu and Bengal, I think Hindi is already part either of the curriculum or general public usage.
