Decision to set up Telugu Development Authority hailed

*Guntur: *Hailing the government’s decision to establish Telugu Development
Authority, the Telugu Bhashodyama Samakhya expressed dissatisfaction over
the government’s move to issue a government order instead of introducing a
bill in the forthcoming Assembly session.

Dr Samala Ramesh Babu, president of the Telugu Bhashodyama Samakhya
recalled in a statement here on Monday that Chief Minister N Chandrababu
Naidu announced during the official celebration of Telugu Language Day in
2017, that the bill would be introduced in the Assembly to establish Telugu
Development Authority. However, the Authority was set up through a
government order instead of the bill in the Assembly which was not proper,
he said.

Dr Ramesh Babu opined that several works which have to be undertaken by the
Telugu Development Authority were linked with the government policy
decisions like official language policy and implementation of Telugu medium
in education. ``It is not proper to establish such an important institution
through a government order,” he averred.

The Telugu Bhashodyama Samakhya conducted a workshop here on Sunday to
discuss the steps to be taken for the development of Telugu language.
``Considering such important issues like Telugu language development, the
government should immediately spell out its policies on implementation of
official language in general administration, legislation and judiciary and
in the education sector,’’ participants at  the workshop demanded.

The government order listed out six types of penalties for violating the
norms set by the Telugu Development Authority. However, the legal experts
express doubts over the implementation of such penalties, the workshop
stated and added that there are some other ambiguities in the government
order and they should also be rectified.

The workshop appealed to the government to go ahead with the establishment
of the Authority by introducing a bill in the forthcoming Assembly session
after rectifying the anomalies in the government order.
