Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Science & Technology; MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh said today that the use of Hindi has increased in all government departments including scientific departments and institutions across the country.
He emphasised that the efforts of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in promoting Hindi all over the world has been an inspiration for all and has increased the popularity of Hindi internationally.
Dr Jitendra Singh said this while chairing the 34th meeting of the Joint Hindi Advisory Committee of the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Ministry of Earth Sciences, in New Delhi.
Members of the Committee gave their valuable suggestions on the use of Hindi. In this meeting, non-official members of the Committee, including Members of Parliament and eminent Hindi scholars from across the country, along with representatives from the Department of Science and Technology, Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, Department of Biotechnology and Ministry of Earth Sciences and subordinate organisations participated.
The committee members reviewed the working status of Hindi in these departments and also gave their valuable suggestions to increase the use of Hindi in government offices.
Dr Jitendra Singh asked the members of the Committee to suggest some good experts who can be engaged by the Science Ministries for quality translation of Science Journals, Magazines and other documents.
He pointed out that Government had launched the MBBS course books in Hindi – making Madhya Pradesh the first State to offer medical education in the language. This is a pathbreaking initiative, a sort of “renaissance”, for the education sector in India, he said.
Pointing out that languages bind people, never break them away unless they are forcibly implemented, Dr Jitendra Singh said, all of us should relentlessly work both for mother tongue and the official language Hindi, and should make an endeavour to learn more languages.
Dr Jitendra Singh said, a large number of youth from the non-Hindi speaking regions are working in the Tourism and Aviation Sectors and the knowledge of Hindi has helped them secure jobs.
The Minister observed, when the language is linked with jobs or vocations, it finds its own path of growth and development.
