Objection to Governor's Hindi speech

 A section of members in the Legislative Council on Monday raised objection to Governor Vajubhai Vala delivering his address to the joint session of the legislature in Hindi.

Basavaraj Horatti (JD-S), who raised the issue, said he had failed to comprehend what the governor said as he did not understand Hindi. H M Revanna (Congress) said the governor could have made an effort to read out at least one line in Kannada. Leader of the Opposition K S Eshwarappa said Vala was not from Karnataka and he chose to deliver his speech in the national language.
