Stress on use of Telugu in government offices
Kakinada: Chairman of the Official Language Commission A.B.K. Prasad has said that Telugu should get its due recognition as one of the oldest languages and every effort is being made to increase its importance in the Government offices.
Inaugurating the two-day seminar on `Changing trends in Telugu literature-introduction of new techniques in Telugu teaching' at Ideal College campus here on Saturday, he said globalisation had contributed to the increased influence of English and reducing the importance of Telugu. He wanted that those who studied Telugu should also get equal opportunities on the lines of those educated in English.
Mr. Prasad described the G.O. issued by the Tamil Nadu Government claiming Tamil being the oldest language known in the world, baseless. He said action was being taken to implement Telugu in all the Government offices and in courts.
