Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu has said that he will make it compulsory to teach Telugu as a mandatory subject up to at least the tenth standard. Learning another language or languages is encouraged but foregoing commitment to one’s mother tongue is not good. Neither Chandrababu, nor Venkaiah, and not even Prime Minister Narendra Modi studied in English medium is what the CM has said. This feeling has been reiterated by Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu. This exchange happened at the meet for announcing new highways.
The plans should be implemented in the coming academic year the Vice President has told the CM. Telugu language is to be made compulsory for getting jobs in Andhra Pradesh. The proposal wants to make Telugu compulsory in schools no matter what medium they follow. The current trend of convent education and job oriented education is deteriorating the state language and studying it and being fluent in it will be mandatory for jobs.
