Government orders probe in school incident for speaking in telugu

Kadapa DEO orders inquiry


The State Government has ordered an inquiry into the incident in which two students of St. Joseph's School in Mydukur in Kadapa district were punished for speaking Telugu in classroom and placards with the words 'I never speak Telugu' were tied to their necks. The Minister for Secondary Education, DM Varaprasada Rao speaking to media persons on Tuesday said that the inquiry would be conducted by the Deputy Educational Officer of the district and Mandal Revenue Officer and action would be taken after getting the report.

He said that the incident amounted to insulting Telugu language. Government's recognition to the school would be withdrawn if the management found guilty and if the headmaster or a particular teach was found responsible. He said that as directed by the Chief Minister, K Rosaiah, the payments due to the self help groups and others implementing the mid day meal scheme in the State would be cleared hereafter once in a month. He would submit a report to the Chief Minister on the implementation of a similar scheme in Tamilnadu which was found to be superior in some ways, for possible replication in the State.

On the instructions of the Minister, Kadapa DEO Subba Reddy conducted an inquiry on Tuesday into the punishment meted out to a boy Madhu and a girl Sahithi both eight years old and studying in their third standard. The school correspondent Fr.Prabhakar tendered an apology to the parents at a meeting and said the incident occurred in his absence. He said that the school was not averse to teaching Telugu and stated that he studied MA Telugu and had affection for the language. He assured that action would be taking against the teaching staff members responsible for the incident. Meanwhile, BJP district president O Srinivasulu Reddy condemned the incident and demanded an inquiry while students of Federation of India activists staged a protest near the school.
