Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has done nothing to promote Telugu language, former Rajya Sabha member Yarlagadda Lakshmi Prasad has alleged.

Addressing the media on Friday, Mr. Lakshmi Prasad, referring to the reports that one Indian language was ceasing to exist every two months, said he was pained to know that Telugu language slid to the fourth place in the widely spoken languages category.

“Mr. Naidu has done nothing worthy to promote Telugu language. The promise of introducing Telugu as a compulsory subject from Class 1 to Intermediate still remains on paper ,” he said. Terming the setting up of the ‘Pradhikara Samstha’ as a farce, he said the day was not far off when there would be no Telugu medium schools in the State .
