Not lived in Maharashtra for 15 yrs? Can’t get taxi permit

I read this news in timesofofindia and I read comments on this.. It is so irritating that people who commented against raj thakrey or maharashtra have not even thought about what is the harm of learning other language?

Most Taxi drivers in Delhi speak Hindi, most rikshaw wallahs in Bengal speak bengali, most of the local vendors, cabbies in UP, Bihar, Gujarat, Rajasthan speak local language. Same is the case with all southern states. Whats wrong if same is expected from cabbies in Maharashtra?

Moreover it is law passed in 1989..

If you travel to italy and try and speak hindi will it work ? If you want to work in italy you will try and learn italian since it will make your life easy.
If someone stays in maharashtra for 15 years and can not speak local language and driving taxi how it will work?
Before spitting out venom why dont these people even think?

Some are very irritating comments and even people from southern india are commenting against talking local language.. I think this is totally hypocritical. If you go to madras and speak in hidi to the rikshaw driver he wont even bother looking at it.

I am not supporting what MNS is doing but at the same time if you are working in other states whats wrong learning the local language?

No one raised issue when Karnatak CM makde kannad compulsary

Then why media makes it a issue when things happen in mumbai.

As far as UP and biharis are concerned they are not ill treated for their language but the things they spoil where they go. It is not only in maharashtra but Assaam, Orisa, Tamilnadu, Karnatak even delhi and hariyana.
Bodos kill hindi speaking labourers, ULFAs does same then do these mahan netas even bother to comment? Few days ago there was agitation against biharis in haryana. I dont recollect that I read news about Nitish kumar and chaara ghotala king lalu sending letter to PM? Otr is it just not published?
When something happens in mumbai all Timesofindia, indian express immediately start raising the issue like this is do or die situation.. Why? Is media biased?
I think yes, media is biased and media is hopeless.. They never raised issue about Ruchika or why bloody SPS rathore was given only 6 months sentence, never uttered word about china encroaching arunachal day by day, infact one newspaper was even patronizing Pakistani players for IPL..
