The figure are practically wrong, to say the least. The number of speakers was grossly confused with the populations of respective States. For insatnce, the number of the Telugu-speakers was shown as 74 million, which is nothing but a faithful reproduction of the 2001 census readings for Andhra Pradesh. It did not take into account the 20 million Telugu-speakers of Tamilnadu who declared the it as their mother tongue in the same census. Nor did it take into account the whole Telugu speaking districts of Dharmapuri (Tamilnadu), Ballery (Karnataka), Dantewada (Chattisgarh), Ganjam and Berhampur (Orissa)just because they lie outside Andhra pradesh. So, these fugures are not authentic.
