Arya on his twitter account has shared this –I spoke in my mother tongue (first language) Kannada in Canadian parliament. This beautiful language has long history and is spoken by about 50 million people. This is the first time Kannada is spoken in any parliament in the world outside of India.

More than that, Arya invoked poet laureate Kuvempu and thespian of Kannada cinema Dr Rajkumar saying- Elladaru Iru, Enthadaru Iru, Endendigu Nee Kannadavagiru ( Be it anywhere, be a Kannadiga always).
