Khammam: Telugu language is like mother and to give a worldwide recognition to it, the State government is organising ‘World Telugu Conference’ (WTC) in Hyderabad from December 15 to 19, said Roads and Buildings Minister Tummala Nageshwar Rao here on Tuesday.
The Minister inaugurated the preparatory celebrations here at Bhaktaramadasu Kalakshetram here on Tuesday.
Speaking on the occasion the R&B Minister Tummala Nageshwar Rao said that the proposed WTC under the leadership of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao would bring all the people who like and admire Telugu language from all corners of the world under one platform for the first time in history.
When compared to other languages, one can understand mother-tongue easily. He said the Telugu language is sweeter compared to other languages. Teaching must be purely in Telugu language to create interest among students on Telugu language, suggested the Minister. Many great poets and writers strived hard to give worldwide popularity to Telugu language.
