Writes to Centre saying 3-language policy is unreasonable
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, on Friday, wrote to Union Urban Development Minister Narendra Singh Tomar explaining that the State government was ‘compelled to ask the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (BMRCL) to temporarily redesign the signages’ and name boards in Namma Metro stations without using Hindi.
In a two-page letter, he requested the Union minister to review an earlier decision on use of three languages — regional language, Hindi and English — on all name boards and signages in Namma Metro stations, asserting that the Centre’s
three-language policy is ‘not reasonable’.
Citing the widespread campaign against the three-language policy on social media and on the streets, he said, “It has begun to take a violent turn with activists trying to deface the metro name boards/signages.”
Law and order issue
Although the State government has ‘strictly dealt with’ those who defaced signages and maintained peace in and around metro stations, he argued that it is counter-productive to insist on the use of Hindi. “This, especially in the wake of a continued agitation and demands from littérateurs and intellectuals for giving primacy to the language of the State and the languages with which people of the city and commuters are familiar with,” the letter said.
Describing language as a ‘sensitive matter’, the CM had a word of advice to the Union minister. “I would like to impress upon you that it will be better to follow a persuasive approach rather than a mandatory approach in the matter of use of Hindi,” the letter added.

Nopes... It is just some politicians who are creating divide and doing divide and rule. Normal people don't have any time for this thing. They not even bothered for such issues.
In my personal experience I visited Chennai Bangalore many times and I found people very nice and friendly and they had no issues with North people. I had no language problem as everybody understood English.
people from south work in North and they have no problem. I have many friends in those places and they work in Delhi and are living happily. I met them many times and we enjoy north and south cuisines together and have great time. My friend gifted me Mysore sweet dish when I was leaving and later when I went there I gifted him Gulab Jamun which he liked very much.
Not only south, people from far East are also friends and they also are very friendly. And we enjoy each other company when we meet.
There is nothing as North South East West , it is just India and India must come first for everyone.
Whole India is an example of unity in diversity and should remain as such.
