Use of official language found unsatisfactory

By Our Staff Reporter

NIZAMABAD, OCT. 4. As many as 29 heads of departments in the district administration were found to be using less than 50 per cent of official Telugu language in daily official correspondence. They include the Conservator of Forests, Superintending Engineer (Irrigation) and Superintending Engineer (Roads and Buildings).

Disclosing this at a meeting here on Monday, the Joint Collector, G. Venkatrami Reddy, said an explanation was sought from such officials as to why they failed to use the official language. Progress in the usage of language had been on the decline, he said.

The official remarked that pure toddy was hardly available, while adulterated toddy was being sold everywhere. He asked the Superintendent of Excise and Prohibition to check the supply of adulterated toddy made of diazepam and chloral hydrate by giving a wide publicity.

Pointing out to the inaction of the forest officials over the complaint that timber was being smuggled out from Morthad mandal, he directed the official to conduct extensive raids to plug illegal transportation of logs.
