Chennai: Maintaining its opposition to “imposition” of Hindi in the State, the Tamil Nadu Government directed two universities not to implement the UGC circular and said the decision taken by the previous UPA Government would not be binding on it. Former chief minister Jayalalithaa said the move, amounting to “imposing Hindi”, had been initiated during the previous government. She said her party’s stand was consistent and Hindi should not be imposed on non-Hindi speaking states.
