Telangana movement was run on the principle of justice but the government has failed to deliver it.
Telangana government has been continuously and systematically taking steps to eradicate Urdu language. Every year there have been problematic reports coming out regarding admissions into Urdu medium courses and this year the degree admission portal ‘DOST’ isn’t accepting admissions into urdu medium courses. The government is busy in eradication of Urdu language by various means despite it being the second official and the second most spoken language of the state. Such attitude of the government is against a large section of the population is of grave concern.
Every year the seats are being continously reduced and the the vacant faculty positions kept as it is. Instead of filling the vacancies the government has been cancelling the course itself. The admissions into B. Com/B. Sc courses was stopped two years ago and in the remaining courses the vacant positions are not being filled. SIO had intervened in the matter last year at districts level and this year there are plans to take up the issue at state level.
Dr. Talha Faiyazuddin, President SIO Telangana said that the separate Telangana movement was run on the principle of justice to people of Telangana and it is imperative that the government provides justice to the language, culture and civilisation of the people. But ever since the government came to power it has been committing injustice to the people. Education in mother tongue is an acknoweldged fact but the government hasn’t been providing the option to pursue education in mother tongue, especially the to those whose mother tongue is urdu. Dr. Talha Faiyazuddin further said that SIO Telangana demands with the Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao that the admissions to urdu medium courses be started immediately and the vacant faculty positions be filled at the earliest so as to safeguard the future of students.
