BENGALURU: Former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has criticized the BJP state government for using Hindi on the official Kannada and Culture Department website. Shortly after his criticism, the ministry quickly made changes to the website.

“Is it the state Department of Kannada and Culture or the Department of Hindi and Culture,” he asked on social media. He had tagged a screenshot of the department’s homepage which contained “Har Ghar Tiranga”, “Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav” and “Bharat Sarkar Sanskriti Mantralaya (Ministry of Culture, Government of India)”, in Hindi.

He accused the state government of imposing Hindi and insulting Kannada to appease BJP Central leaders. He said the banner for the program in Bengaluru attended by Union Home Secretary Amit Shah was entirely in Hindi.

He urged the Department of Kannada and Culture to remove Hindi from its official website and said, “Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai and Minister of Kannada and Culture Sunil Kumar should clarify this.” He said if Sunil Kumar decided to use the department’s website to campaign for Hindi, that would save Kannada.

As the department removed Hindi from its website, some netizens criticized Congress for ignoring Kannada in the banner during the meeting attended by former AICC President Rahul Gandhi in Hubballi on Tuesday. .
