In a major setback to Chief Minister Jagan and his team, Supreme Court on Thursday served notices to the state government which sought a change of medium of education from class one to six in its government schools.
Seeking a response from Srinivas Guntipalli on whose plea the Andhra Pradesh High Court had stopped the implementation of G.O 84, the bench comprising Justices D Y Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and K M Joseph stated that it would consider and examine the state government’s order.
It is to the known knowledge that the Andhra Pradesh government has filed a special leave petition claiming that parents wanted English to be the medium of education and it was progressive. Senior advocate Gopal Shankarnarayanan who was the petitioner in the High Court, accepted the notice and will have to file a response in two weeks.
The top court has now fixed the plea for hearing on September 25.
