Deputy Chief Minister Kadiyam Srihari instructed Education Department officials to take steps to implement Telugu language as a compulsory subject from the ensuing academic year. Deputy Chief Minister chaired a review meeting held on the subject here on Monday. Srihari said implementation of Telugu language as a compulsory subject should not cause any inconvenience to the students. Instead, it should be made as an interesting one to study and to score marks in the examinations.
He held a review meeting at Secretariat on Monday to find ways and means to make Telugu subject easy and interesting for the students. The sub-committee submitted its report taking into consideration the model of CBSE.
Further, the officials said the books are being prepared in such a way that those who have not studied Telugu up to V standard can also easily study the language in their VI standard. Similar efforts are made to ensure that students can study Telugu without much trouble in VIII to the first year of intermediate course, they added.
