With this, the demands to make Tamil as the official language of India have also increased. DMK President MK Stalin has urged PM Narendra Modi to make Tamil one of the official languages of India. This comes after PM Modi said that Tamil was resonating across the US after his speech at the UNGA. "His words give immense happiness and pride not only to Tamils here but to every Tamilian across the globe," Stalin said.
On Monday, the Prime minister again said that when he spoke in Tamil in the US and about the heritage of the Tamil language, it was received well and was now reverberating across the US. The Constitution of India designates the official language of the Government of India as Hindi written in the Devanagari script, as well as English. There is no national language as declared by the Constitution of India.
