"We will insist on Odiya being used since our people are familiar with it and that will make their task of availing service at AIIMS easier and we will formally lodge our protest with the Health Ministry and ask for a change in this directive,"  he added. 

On February 20, an official order of AIIMS Bhubaneswar stated that the government servant is specified to do his official work in Hindi with an immediate effect.
