About Us Download history of AITF

It is well known that in the entire world, next to Andhra Pradesh, largest number of Telugus live in Tamil Nadu. About 30 yrs ago, Telugu activists of TN had realized the declining patronage and popularity of Telugu culture and language gradually in the state, for various reasons. It is notable that the first six Chief Ministers of Madras Presidency were of Telugu origin (Rajah of Panagal, B Munuswamy, Bobbili Rajah, Tanguturi Prakasam, Omandur Ramasamy Reddiar and Kumarswamy Rajah) and the first Mayor of Madras was Sir Pitti Thyagaraya Chetty, from Padma Sali community.

Though there were several community based organizations, such as Naidu, Reddy, Arya Vysya, Brahmin, Naicker, Uppara, Padma Sali, Adi Andhras, Arundhathiars. Beri Vysya, 24-Manai Telungu Chettiar, Kummri Chetty,Viswakarma, Golla, Chaakali, Vaddi, Janapa Chetty, Kambalathu Naicker, Konda Reddy, Boyar, Telugu Yadava, Kshathriya, Yerukula (Girijans) etc. they could not create any impact with the public or the government. Hence it was decided to bring all the 23 Telugu speaking communities into one fold, to have a forum to interact with the government on various issues concerning the linguistic minorities in general and Telugus in particular. Accordingly, after several years of spadework, All India Telugu Federation was formed in 1989, electing Prof C M K Reddy as its founder-president. Very soon, people from all walks of life started supporting the movement and earned the recognition of the TN government also.
