Rajya Sabha MP Jairam Ramesh, took to Twitter, saying, “Absolutely, totally bizarre! This is unconstitutional.”
Kerala MP Shashi Tharoor called the move a violation of human rights.
“It boggles the mind that in democratic India a government institution can tell its nurses not to speak in their mother tongue to others who understand them. This is unacceptable, crude, offensive and a violation of the basic human rights of Indian citizens. A reprimand is overdue!” he tweeted.
“Malayalee nurses are the backbone of the Healthcare system in many States. Asking them not to speak to each other in Malayalam is ridiculous. Can other States issue similar instructions to native Hindi speakers?” Sumanth Raman, political analyst and commentator, said on Twitter.
