Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao said the inaugural function of the first World Telugu Conference will be held on the auspicious Vijayadasami day on September 30, while the conference will be held from October 22 to 28.
It was earlier decided that the inaugural ceremony would be held on June 2, the state's Formation day.
But as the date falls under 'Ashtami' and weather may not be conducive, the state government's Advisor for Cultural Affairs K. V Ramanachary and other literary personalities requested the CM for the change of dates, said a statement from the CMO.
They said they require some time to invite delegates from India and abroad and to organise the conference on a large scale.
