Pending Telugu Issues to the PM of Malaysia


Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak wishes   the Telugu community in Malaysia an auspicious start to our new year every year He also  further added the  celebration will strengthen ties not only among the Telugus but also among all races as and "As a caring government, we'll continue to support efforts to improve the welfare of the Telugu community so that they, too, will be able to enjoy the prosperity. 
And it is only right and fair that we Malaysian Telugus/ 30 branches of Telugu Association branches around the country to bring to the attention of the our beloved Prime Minister of Malaysia of the Pending Telugu main issues as follows:-

Telugu language is not offered in PMR or SPM examinations?

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.

No Telugu channel for malaysian Telugus?The private pay channel “ASTRO” in our country has not been considerate to air enough programmes for the Telugu community. The least they could have done is to at least allocate five to eight hours Telugu programmes every day and upgrade the Telugu serials and have if they had valued us, the Telugu community, as their customers too. or we being the minority group and are not deemed to be heard. Telugu community subscribers were disappointed with the time allocated for them over ASTRO.

Or, allow the approval for the usage of satellite dishes as there are lot satellite dishes around the country especially in the Perak,Kedah,Perlis,Johor and East Malaysia.
Telugus should not be sidelined in the field of mother -tongue entertainment. 
Telugu Senator ?Government to consider appointing a senator from our community to highlight in Parliament the problems being faced by our community.

Telugu programmes over RTM?For additional time for the Telugu community on Minnal FM, the Indian based radio programme on RTM.
