In a major development, the Telangana state government has decided to make Telugu a compulsory subject from class 1 to class 12 in the southern state. A resolution is to be passed by the Telangana government in the State cabinet meet for protection and perseverance of Telugu language and literature.

"The CM has instructed all the educational institutions in the state, both private and public, to teach Telugu as a compulsory subject from Class I to XII". Chief Minister K. Chandrasekar Rao on Tuesday made it clear that only those educational institutions teaching Telugu as a compulsory subject would be given recognition and permissions to function. Students can also take Urdu as an optional subject.

Chief Minister Rao asked the Sahitya Academy in the state to prepare syllabi for primary and secondary schools. The syllabus should be prepared and textbooks should be printed at the earliest, he said.

The Chief Minister also instructed that all private and public institutions in Telangana must display their organisation's name in Telugu on their signboards. The government strictly directed institutions to use syllabus which would be assigned by Sahitya Academy, they are not allowed to set it according to their requirements. All schools must have to follow the official guidelines and introduce Telugu as a new subject from 1st to 12th standards.

He was speaking at a meeting to discuss plans for the five day World Telugu Conference that will be held in Hyderabad from December 15 to 19, 2017, and for which the government has sanctioned Rs 50 crore.

The Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh N Chandrababu Naidu also made a decision to enact a legislation, a few days back, to give more power to the Telugu Language Development Committee for more effective enforcement of Telugu as the official medium of communication in the state.

The opposition Congress' deputy leader in Telangana Legislative Council, P Sudhakar Reddy addressed it a great decision of the government. It is up to them to write their firm's name in other languages as well, he said. Chief Minister also informed authorities to be focused on best arrangements for the event.

According to the reports, the state government has sanctioned Rs 50 crore for the goal. It would be better if state government assembles an all-party meeting, it should not be a unilateral declaration.
