Yeah, i agree with you. But as far as my experience says, most policeman in mumbai know hindi though they are more interested in talking marathi. Most of them listen to you when you speak to them in marathi. It is like you can patav them better when you talk in marathi. What say?

The police needs to touch base with the local population and it is imperative for them to speak the local lingo to reach and aspire for the same. However Mumbai being a cosmopolitan city even Hindi does work its way. Not too sure if this is also another of the Marathi Manoos flares. However all said it is best for the police to be well verse in one a many lingos.
