Mumbai: Samajwadi Party (SP) MLA Abu Asim Azmi said here on Wednesday that if Hindi was not made the optional language in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly, he would move the Supreme Court.

Mr. Azmi was recently attacked by legislators of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) for taking his oath of office in Hindi.

A press release issued by the party said: “We respect Marathi as the official language, but our fight is to make Hindi the optional language instead of English.”
