U.R Anantha Murthy at the centenary celebrations of A.N. Krishna Rao, quoted in Praja Vani:
“Because of IT, our trees have been destroyed. Because of IT, our language has been destroyed. Trees are down, science is down, knowledge is down, everything is down. Only IT is up.
“Whichever country we go to in the world, we have to learn its language. It’s not so here. We too must exert pressure to ensure those who come here learn our language.”
