DMK leader M Karunanidhi on Monday alleged that there was an attempt to impose Sanskrit with the support of the ruling party at the Centre. He then threatened to launch an anti-Sanskrit protest on the lines of the anti-Hindi agitation.

According to The Hindu, he was addressing a gathering at the marriage of the daughter of former minister Poongothai Aladi Aruna, he said those who sought to impose Sanskrit should stop the “atrocity” immediately.

“Otherwise, there will be protest against the imposition of Sanskrit as it happened in the case Hindi. No one should be responsible for such a situation,” he said.

Karunanidhi said if anyone advocated Sanskrit, every Tamil should take a whip and be ready for eradicating the language. “We will not allow domination of Sanskrit not only in Tamil Nadu, but in any State. We will chase it away,” he warned.
