The fourth conference of the World Telugu Writers began on Saturday with people sharing and expressing their love for the language and stressing on the need to preserve its sweetness and greatness. Union Minister for Parliamentary Affairs M Venkaiah Naidu, who inaugurated the two-day conference, appealed to the people to promote the language and the culture of the Telugu people.

He encouraged Telugu speaking people to learn and master more languages, but wanted them to love their mother tongue above all. He wanted Telugu writers to focus on getting their work translated into Hindi and English to reach Indian and global readers. The Union Minister added that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had asked all the State Governments to organise year long programmes to promote mother tongue in their respective States.

“This would help in encouraging children to learn and love their mother tongue. Also, the mother tongue should be made a compulsory subject in both government and private schools from primary level. The government should take action against those educational institutions that prohibit speaking mother tongue in the schools and colleges.”

Executive president of the conference Dr Yarlagadda Lakshmi Prasad said that over 600 delegates have come from Telangana State besides 1,600 delegates from 7 countries. He wanted the Central government to establish a Telugu Academy at the national level to promote the language. Deputy speaker Mandali Buddha Prasad said that the government had granted classical status for Telugu after a long fight. “However, it is not of any help to Telugu writers or the language as the funds allocated under the scheme are not being utilised.

The Central government must ensure that the funds are properly utilised for the promotion and protection of the language,” he said and encouraged people to use Telugu on the internet too. Krishna Zilla Parishad chairperson Gadde Anuradha promised to ensure that the transactions of the ZP office were carried out in Telugu. She also promised to see that Telugu was used in all the ZP schools in the district.
