NEW DELHI, Oct 13: The Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned for hearing after the next week's Dussehra holidays a petition by the Andhra Pradesh Government, challenging the High Court's verdict in April quashing an order mandating English medium in class I-VI in all the state government-run primary schools.
A Bench, headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Sharad Arvind Bobde with Justices A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian, was hearing the appeal of the state government, questioning the validity of the Andhra Pradesh High Court's order. Earlier this month, it had refused to stay the High Court order.
The High Court had quashed the YSR Congress Party government's order making English compulsory in the primary schools on a petition filed by BJP leaders SudhishRambhotla and Guntupalli Srinivas.
The state government has made both as respondents as also the Union Education Ministry, Guntur district aided schools management association, Dalitha Bahujan Front, Adi Hindu Social Service League, Peoples' Education Trust, Dalit Stree Shakthi (NGO) and Bahujan Teachers Association who had joined the petition in the High Court.
