The Gujarat High Court has rejected a PIL seeking directions to the Centre to conduct all its administrative work in Hindi.
The PIL said that the centre should do away with English.
In this PIL Amrutlal Parmar from Rajkot wanted HC to order Centre to ask the Union government to do work in Hindi as it is the national language. He said that though India became independent 60 years ago people are still obsessed with English. Hindi was neglected, he added.
A bench of Chief Justice Bhaskar Bhattacharya and Justice J B Pardiwala said that it cannot ask the government to adopt a particular language if there is no infringement on the petitioner’s legal or fundamental right.
