Speaking to the newsmen, the Judge said that he delivered the verdict t in Telugu following recent instructions from the State Government and AP High Court.

The initiative is aimed at helping the litigant public understand the judgment," he stated. District Judge PMM Siddharthi welcomed the move and said that Mr Kalyan Rao's initiative would encourage young lawyers, who are not proficient in English, to make arguments in Telugu and inspire other Judges to pronounce the judgments in the local language.
