India is a Nation where languages and dialects change with villages and regions. A single language is not at all sufficient to communicate with people from every region in India. BJP, carelessly, did not arrange a translator for the Yogi Adityanath’s rally and thus, witnessed an embarrassing dispersion of people from the rally at Yellareddy in Kamarareddy district.
Local leaders from Zaheerabad did their best to gather crowd but forgot the translator. In the rally, Yogi Adityanath was bashing the ruling party Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) in his own way of expressing. The expression did not reach the public as it was in Hindi. The clueless and angry public stood and started leaving the rally.
Telugu speaking women said that they couldn’t understand a word. “We didn’t understand what he was saying. BJP leaders, who made us come all the way to attend the meeting, should have at least got a translator,” said a women at the public meeting.
It has been norm that the local BJP leaders translate the speech of the national leaders. However, this time the BJP candidate did not arrange a translator. Such incident could have happened with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. During recent Mahbubnagar rally, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had started his speech in Hindi, but as soon as he realised that people were not responding, he asked BJP state president K Laxman to translate for him in Telugu.
It’s common sense that people prefer to listen speeches in their own language. It is also a way to connect with them emotionally too. Due to this reason only regional parties and politics came into the picture. The incident was an embarrassment for BJP. Let’s hope that they learn from this mistake and won’t repeat it again.
