Lumla legislator Jambey Tashi on Sunday said most developed countries use their national language in the conduct of international engagements and similarly India can also progress and achieve its goal with the use of Hindi.
Tashisaid said this while addressing a programme titled ‘Hindi Ko Salaam’ organized by the Itanagar unit of Arunachal Hindi Sansthan (AHS) at the Kalawangpo Convention Hall in Arunachal Pradesh’s Tawang.
He said, “Even Arunachalees have accepted Hindi with pride and made it a link between the people to connect and contact each other.”
The MLA also congratulated the Arunachal Hindi Sansthan for organizing the programme at Tawang.
Earlier, AHS chairman Tatam Sonia in his address said, “Arunachal Pradesh is a diverse state with all its 26 major tribes and hundreds of sub-tribes speaking their own dialects but lack a common language of its own.”
He said in the given context of Arunachal Pradesh not having a common language, Hindi has come to fill that vacuum.
“While promotion of Hindi is very important in the larger context, preservation and use of native languages/dialects are also equally important,” Sonia said.
AHS chief advisor and principal advisor to the chief minister, Tai Tagak, said Hindi is the language of national integration and identity.
Use of Hindi evokes a sense of pride among its speakers, said Tagak while asking the young students present in the programme to use Hindi in their day to day lives with pride.
