Language policy: Hearing of contempt pleas today

TNN 13 July 2009, 01:25am IST

BANGALORE : A high court division Bench headed by Justice N Kumar will
on Monday take up the hearing of a batch of contempt petitions against
officials of the education department with regard to the government's
language policy. The chief secretary is likely to appear in court.
Dismissing a writ appeal and interlocutary application filed by the
government on Wednesday, the court had asked the chief secretary to
submit in writing what the state proposes to do in the matter.

The HC had dismissed the writ appeal challenging the April 6 order of
a single Bench, asking them to consider an application filed by
Rajajinagar Education Society for registration as an Englsih-medium
school. The IA sought deferring of the hearing to July 21.
The government has filed nine special leave petitions before the
Supreme Court, apart from the one challenging the high court's full
Bench verdict of July 2, 2008. The additional petitions are likely to
come up before the apex court on Tuesday. The hearing on the main SLP
is fixed for July 21.
