Hindi Diwas 2019: On the occasion of Hindi Diwas, as the nation unites to celebrate its distinct identity, reactions have started pouring in from across all political circles to observe the day, 14 September, that crowns Hindi as one of the official languages of India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday greeted the nation on the occasion of Hindi Diwas and stressed on the "simplicity, spontaneity and decency" of the national language that offers meaning to expression.

Claiming that Hindi holds the ability to "tie the country to the door of unity", Home Minsiter Amit Shah asked the citizens to increase the use of the language in their everyday life to realise the dreams of Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.

Urging everyone to try their best in promoting the national language, the BJP tweeted from its Rajasthan handle and said that Hindi is the "boon of our consciousness".

Chief Minister of Haryana Manohar Lal extended his greetings and urged everyone to be proud of their mother tongue.

Asserting than Hindi is not just a language, but an integral part of our culture, Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot said it was important for citizens to incorporate the language in our daily practices thereby, contributing to increasing its pride.

The Congress also took to Twitter to extend greetings on the historic day when Hindi was given the status of official language under constitutional provisions.

Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad also offered his greetings to everyone.

Kailash Vijayvargiya, BJP National General Secretary, said that "Developing one's own language is the key to every development."

Former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said:

After Independence, the Constituent Assembly took the decision in 1949 to adopt Hindi as the official language of India. Thereafter, the Rashtrabhasha Prachar Samiti, Wardha on 1953 requested to observe 14 September as Hindi Day every year and broadcast the language in every region.
