He added that the people of Barak Valley love their mother tongue and have deep respect for other languages as well. However, any attempt to impose any language by anyone shall not be tolerated at all. "Bengali is our mother tongue and if need be, we shall die to safeguard our language. However, we have deep love and respect for other languages as well. The reverence of the people of Barak Valley should not be construed as our weakness. We shall not tolerate any attempt to impose any language upon us," the chief convener maintained.
