Did the NaMo Govt. issue the ‘Hindi Memo’ ?

published on June 22, 2014

The NaMo Govt. was sworn in on the evening of 26 May 2014.

The Union Home Minister and his MoS assumed charge of the Home Ministry on 29 May 2014.

The memo on Hindi was issued on 27 May 2014.

All these dates are FACTS.

That being the case, did the NaMo Govt. issue the ‘Hindi Memo’ ?

Was it possible for the Govt. to move at the speed of lightning to issue the memo, on the day after the swearing-in ceremony ?

Defies logic.

This being the case, I am reminded of the adage ‘ History repeats itself ‘.

Lets rewind to the period 1998-’99, when the then NDA Govt. under Vajpayee was in harness.

The media, regrettably, went into a ‘Secular Overdrive’ then, in an effort to ‘blacken’ the ‘communal’ Vajpayee Govt. !!

As Arun Shourie wrote :

” If you had been in India in late 1998 – early 1999, and the English language ‘national’ newspapers had been your source of information about what was going on, you would have concluded that an extensive, well – coordinated pogrom was on, that maniacal Hindu groups were going round raping nuns, attacking missionaries, burning down churches”.

So ‘Minorities’ then. Now ; Hindi.

Common Factor : ‘secularly’ tarnish the image of the NDA Govt. !!

Indian Express had published on 29 June 2004 an excellent Opinion entitled :

” Secular Hoot and Scoot : Tell Lies and Run Away “.

Said it all.

The Aam Aadmi, today, has diverse sources from which he can collect information as also authenticate them unlike 1998.

Hope the media understands the changed circumstances !

    Put on hold all controversial issues
    Keep in mind that the sick-ular enemies of Modiji are waiting to fish in troubled waters. So wait a few months before implementing policies like compulsory usage of Hindi & sudden major increse in rail fare etc. You will be asking for trouble from friends of mafia queen & Commies & other visha kanyas.

    BJP acting in haste
    The reasons that you have said supporting Hindi does not sell well.It is a know fact that BJP & RSS are Hindi fanatics and have not changed. Even if BJP did not give the Hindi first order, their spokespersons are openly claiming Hindi to be national language on TV which is not true.On top of that they are defending themselves saying this order is only for Hindi speaking states. Is the BJP govt only for Hinsi speaking states. I am n ardent BJP fan, but truth be told, BJP committed a huge blunder and has just divided Hindus at the right time. Thank you BJP

    Imposition of Hindi
    I am not sure about your hypothesis. When Rajnath Singh was minister in Vajpayee’s cabinet, he had issued instructions to all his subordinates to put up files to him only in Hindi. Hence very few files came to him and no decisions were taken. I think all 22 national languages should be made official languages.

    Dear Mr. Srini , Your comment about RSS is ill informed . RSS respect all languages – sakhas are conducted in the local languages every where ( The Prayer is in sanskrit ) .
    I am a Malayali swayamsevak and attend IT Milan ( weekly sakha )in Bangalore -IT Milans are cnducted in English .

    Modis first 30 days in office
    Govt may drop attestation of documents by gazetted officers ( Stamp Walo Aapke Din Gaye) You may no longer need a gazetted officer or a magistrate to attest documents sought by government departments.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked his bureaucrats to repeal all laws and rules which come in the way of effective governance. In a meeting with secretaries on Wednesday, the PM suggested government departments should adopt thesystem of self-attestation of certificates, photographs and mark sheets, instead of asking for attested documents or filing of affidavits.

    He also told officials all government application forms should be made short and simple by doing away with unnecessary fields.

    “The prime minister said self-attestation should be enough because it is a hassle for the common man to get it attested from gazetted officers.

    Anyway, the original documents are required to be produced at the final selection…


    Only Scientist and Technical associates will participate and attend the Scientist Conference in India and Abroad….No Minister or Bureaucrat is allowed as a part of this delegations

    This is land mark decision as almost 50% participants were non-technical Ministers and their cronies….who did not understand a thing on the subject…..they just uses to enjoy travel and hospitality at Govt(common man’s) expense.

    For last 67 years nobody had time or inclination to change this as there was no vision in their heads right from Nehru to Mafiosi Sonia ….they have systematically changed the rules to serve their own dynastic purpose and looted the country.

    Right step towards good governance.
