The nation celebrates Hindi Diwas today, 14 September. Hindi Diwas is observed with great enthusiasm to promote the Hindi language and encourage its use, especially among the younger generations.

The day calls upon people to be proud of the Hindi language and its status as one of the official languages of India. Hindi Diwas is celebrated on 14 September as the Constituent Assembly had declared Hindi as the official language of the country on this very day in 1949. Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru later began observing the date as Hindi Diwas.

And if it’s Hindi Diwas, can political leaders be far behind in professing their love for the language? Many leaders took to Twitter to mark the occasion and tweeted in Hindi.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to Twitter to highlight the importance of the language, adding that the “simplicity, spontaneity and sensitivity” of Hindi has always captivated people. He also thanked all those people who have been working tirelessly to enrich the language.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah sent his greetings on Hindi Diwas. He also stated that the Modi government is committed to the parallel development of all local languages, including Hindi. He even shared a video message.

Union Minister Anurag Thakur penned a lengthy message wherein he appealed to employees in the Information and Broadcasting Ministry to complete more of their work in Hindi and make their best efforts to promote the language.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi also wished his followers on Hindi Diwas. “Language is made of emotion. All languages are beautiful and their mutual synergy reflects the diversity and culture of our country. Wishing you all a very Happy Hindi Diwas,” he wrote in Hindi.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath called Hindi a unique symbol of Indian culture.

Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal commented that the Hindi language has contributed significantly to the nation’s development.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde also conveyed his best wishes on the occasion.
