Urdu becomes 2nd official language in Telangana

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao declared that Urdu will be the second official language in the state. He told the state Assembly that there has been a long-standing demand to make Urdu an official language. Muslims make up about 13% of Telanganas’s population. In this latest move, Chief Minister KCR has asked all government offices starting from the Chief Minister’s Office to District Collectorate, to receive all petitions in Urdu as well.  
All competitive examinations will also be conducted in Urdu. Not just making Urdu an official language, earlier the CM had announced that minorities’ development and welfare will be among the top priority programmes being implemented by the state government. However, the most controversial move was to develop an exclusive industrial estate and IT Corridor for Muslims.
