Anti-Hindi row continues to grow in Bengaluru

Prime News, Karnataka, Bengaluru, July 20:- The anti-Hindi agitation seems to be growing with each passing day, as the members of the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KRV) blackened words written in Hindi on the signboard outside Yeswanthpur metro station, here.

On Wednesday night, the members took up the task of blackening the Hindi words written on almost all metro stations, including Jayanagar, Peenya, Deepanjalinagar, Mysuru Road and Yashwanthpur metro stations.

Not just Hindi, even English faced the heat of pro-Kannada activists in the state earlier.

On July 6, the KRV activists defaced English and Hindi signage of a restaurant at a mall near Bengaluru’s Eco Tech Park.

After the anti-Hindi Twitter campaign, #NammaMetroHindiBeda (‘Our Metro, We don’t want Hindi’), Hindi words on the signboards of two Metro stations – Chickpet and Majestic – were covered with paper and taped on July 3.

These metro boards were in Kannada, English and Hindi.
