While addressing a programme organized to welcome new comers in the party today, Oli said that if the Hindi language was listed as the official language in Tarai, it will harm local languages like Maithali, Bhojpuri and Abadhi.
He added that Hindi was not a mother tongue of any community therefore it could not be accepted as the official language in any province.
Former Prime Minister Oli said that the UML was opposition party in the parliament but is a ruling side in local level polls for becoming the largest one therefore it will welcome positive policy and programmes forwarded by the government.
Chair Oli further shared that the locals of Province No 2 were eagerly waiting for UML-led government and have wished for the same.
General Secretary of the Nepal Communist Party (Revolutionary) Pradyumna Narayan Yadav, spokesperson Laxmi Prasad Oli and artist Ramesh Ranjan Jha had joined the UML today.
The programme was organized at the party central office Dhumrabarahi in the capital. RSS
