Dr Achiah Kumar Rao, President Telugu Association of Malaysia in his welcoming speech did mentioned that of this historical event. Dr Achiah went on to say that "As a caring government, its continuous to support efforts to improve the welfare of the Telugu community is much welcomed. He also mentioned some the the Pending Telugu issues such as Telugu language is not offered in PMR or SPM examinations?
As to date, there are about 1050 students who are following POL Telugu classes at some of the government schools such as at Bagan Datoh, Sungai Sumun,Hutan Melintang,Teluk Intan, Klang, Shah Alam, Sunway, Puchong, Batu Caves, Rawang Sitiawan, Bahau, Kulim and Sungai Petani which totals to about 35 classes. But what is saddened and disappointed is, ever since 1993 Telugu language is not being offered any more as an optional subject in PMR and SPM examinations.
And also plead Government to consider appointing a senator from our community to highlight in Parliament the problems being faced by our community.
