Hindi imposition in North Indian States too

Hindi imposition in North Indian States too

The BJP government in India is renaming all national programs and welfare institutions. Regardless of the number of times the non-Hindi speaking states in Tamil Nadu opposition, the BJP government continues its renaming spree in India.
In the Ladakh and the Himalaya regions, a significant portion comprises communities with diverse languages, prominently Ladakhi and Tibetan. Despite the recent name changes in India, the BJP government faces strong opposition from various social groups. 
Various linguistic communities have expressed their opposition to the renaming, and the BJP government persists in its efforts to revert name changes.
Addressing language concerns is crucial in states opposing India's policies. Encouraging people to speak languages other than their own must be avoided. 
Recently, Chief Justice Ananth Venkatesh of the Chennai High Court stated, "I am not inclined to entertain cases related to the renaming of criminal laws". 
The BJP Government has stirred controversy by renaming the criminal laws as Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, Bharatiya Suraksha Sanhita, and Bharatiya Sakshya and so on.
Apart from these issues, the BJP has also implemented name changes in Union Ministries, including Ayush (National Medicine, Yoga), Jal Shakti (Water Power), and Panchayati Raj (Local Governance). This approach extends to the education sector, continuing under the name of national education policy.
In the context of Indian employment exams like UPSC, Tamil has been recently removed, with questions now primarily in English and Hindi. English may eventully be removed.
The people of India should be able to read and comprehend in whatever language they desire; this sentiment is particularly strong in the southern states like Tamil Nadu. This stance persists even in the northern regions like Ladakh, demonstrating unity against these changes.
The Indian people should be given the freedom to communicate in the language of their choice without any restrictions, and the unified government should promote linguistic diversity. This respect for linguistic diversity is essential for the harmonious coexistence of all languages in the country.
