hear the news
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is now beginning to understand the power of Hindi. A major reason for this is being considered for the Lok Sabha elections to be held in 2024. In fact, since the resounding victory in West Bengal, it is being discussed continuously that Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee can become the face of the opposition in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. But his lack of good Hindi is a big hindrance in this path. Whereas the Hindi belt states, especially Uttar Pradesh, are considered the ladder to reach the power of Delhi or to enter the central politics. Therefore, if Mamta wants to reach the people of these states, it will be necessary for her to speak in Hindi. It is discussed that for this reason Mamta Banerjee has now developed a special attachment to Hindi.
Mamta is on a Delhi tour these days. She has come to Delhi for the first time after becoming the Chief Minister of West Bengal for the third time. On her visit, where she first met Prime Minister Narendra Modi, she has also met many leaders including Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Even after getting a tough competition from the BJP, she has managed to capture the power of West Bengal, so a large number of journalists also wanted to meet her with many questions.
All questions of journalists answered in Hindi
Therefore, the meeting of journalists with the Chief Minister was kept at the residence of Trinamool Congress MP Shukhendu Shekhar Rai on Wednesday. On Wednesday, Mamata Banerjee held an informal conversation with about 60 journalists of newspapers and channels, where her ambitions and opposition solidarity at the national level were discussed. According to sources, when Shukhendu Shekhar Rai formally started thanking the media in Bangla, Mamta interrupted him and asked him to speak in Hindi.
Mamta answered all the questions asked in Hindi in Hindi only. When asked how he has corrected his Hindi, he said that seeing PM Modi speak Hindi, his Hindi has also become better. Gujaratis have also become better after seeing Amit Shah. Till now Mamta has been seen speaking only in broken Hindi. She knows Bangla and English language very well. In December 2020, she was reportedly seen in a viral video claiming that she knows 14 languages.
Mamta is getting ready for the politics of the center by learning Hindi
In fact, Mamta has come to know that without speaking good Hindi, it is not possible to do politics in Delhi without winning the hearts of voters of Hindi belt like UP, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan. Trinamool strategists, especially Prashant Kishor, have also explained to Mamta that if she wants to compete with the BJP, then Hindi is the only medium through which she can easily convey her message to the people of these states.
Actually BJP is the most powerful party in the Hindi belt states. In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, in the Hindi belt states, BJP won a landslide victory in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh. BJP got maximum 4.28 crore votes from Uttar Pradesh. On the other hand, 2.14 crore votes were received from Madhya Pradesh, 1.90 crore votes were received from Rajasthan. Apart from this, BJP had a good number of votes in Bihar, Haryana, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand also.
BJP got 62 seats in Uttar Pradesh, 28 in Madhya Pradesh, all 25 seats in Rajasthan, 17 seats in Bihar in the last Lok Sabha elections. According to the 2011 census, 43.63 percent of the people in India speak Hindi. About 75 percent of the people of the country can speak Hindi if the other Indians who use Hindi as a second language are taken into account.
Follow the proverb like desh wais disguise
According to sources, Mamata Banerjee now wants to follow the proverb like ‘Jaisa Desh, Vaisa Bheesh’ like BJP leaders. It has been seen that the leaders of the BJP seem to be embedded in the culture of the state they go to. Be it dress or speech. Talk about the late leader Sushma Swaraj or all the BJP leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, it has been their specialty that they managed to make a place in their hearts by talking to the people in the language of the state they visited.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech style in Hindi is especially famous. He even gives importance to regional languages and dialects in his every election rally. It is often seen that they win the hearts of the crowd by greeting them in the local dialect. After Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister, Hindi has also started getting priority in government work and communication between officials.
Preparing to deliver speech in UP elections
Uttar Pradesh, the most important state of the Hindi belt with 80 Lok Sabha seats, is going to have assembly elections after 6 months and Mamta is very excited about this election and is preparing to give a strong speech in Hindi against BJP in support of SP in election rallies. Huh. According to sources, in response to a question from journalists on Wednesday, he said that if the parties there call, then they will definitely go to campaign.
Since the West Bengal elections, there has been talk that Mamta Banerjee can enter the election battle against Narendra Modi from Banaras, although she did not give a direct answer to this question, just said that I will definitely go to Banaras. According to sources, he said many things that the food there is delicious, the atmosphere there is also good, the Ganges, the different ghats, everything is good. In fact, Mamta Banerjee did not say anything directly and indicated that she would go to Kashi when the time came.
