Primacy to Kannada: K'taka HC hears arguments of schools

Written by: Staff

Bangalore, Apr 19 (UNI) The Karnataka High Court today heard in part arguments on writ petitions and appeals involving the question of Constitutionality of the government order providing primacy for Kannada language in schools and making it compulsory at primary school stage.

Minority Institutions and Association of Unaided Schools Managements have challeged the government order making Kannada language compulsory in schools. The impugned order had been made on the basis of reports of Gokak Committee, H Narasimhiah Committee and observations of the Apex Court while disposing of an earlier order of the government on the same controversy.

The order was challenged on the ground that it violated and took away the protection provided by the Constitution for religious and linguistic minority institutions.

A full Bench, comprising Chief Justice Cyriac Joseph, Justice N Kumar and Justice Manjula Chellur, adjourned the hearing to June six.
