New Delhi: In what might not go down well with several political parties, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday batted for 'One Nation, One Language' on the occasion of Hindi Diwas.

Taking to Twitter, Shah, who is also the president of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), said in Hindi, "India is a country of multiple languages and each of them have significance. But there must be one language for the whole nation which will give India an identity at the world stage. It is only widely-spoken Hindi language can bind the whole nation."

On several occasions, the southern political parties including DMK had accused the Narendra Modi government of imposing Hindi language upon people.

Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had pitched in 'One Nation, One Poll' plan but it was also not widely supported by the Opposition.
