Rosayya who always looks like a traditional telugu person with his attire, never took any steps for the development of telugu when he was CM of the state. Even when many representations were made to him during that period for a seperate Ministry for the development of language, now started giving lectures for the development of telugu.
Ironically the same Rosayya during Arya Vysya meet in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu when everyone started speaking in telugu, he spoke in english. Entire gathering felt insulted and telugu people residing in Tamil Nadu felt insulted in front of their tamil tambis who take pride in their own language. When Rosayya himself did not chose to speak in telugu and insulted his mother tongue, tamil tambis started making fun of telugu people calling them goltis.
