Ever since Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao announced his decision to make Telugu a compulsory language till Class 12th, his counterpart in Andhra Pradesh had to face more troubles.
The Telugaites in Telangana, who see English and Hindi as a threat, saw this as a welcome move. The Andhra residents are now angry with their CM Chandrababu Naidu for not taking a similar decision in the state. They are disappointed with Chandrababu as he failed to give Telugu its due prominence.
Earlier this month, the Telangana government decided to make Telugu a compulsory subject in both public and private institutions in the state from Class I to XII, PTI had reported.
The state government also announced that all the public and private establishments and institutions in Telangana should display their organisation’s names in Telugu on their signboards.
Government also that only those educational institutions that teach Telugu as a compulsory subject will be given recognition and permissions to function, it was reported.
