Court makes Centre party in language row

TNN 28 July 2009, 03:13am IST

BANGALORE: The ongoing language policy issue took a turn on Monday
with the Supreme Court making the Centre party to the case, and
ordered notices  following a PIL by 15 Kannada litterateurs. The
writers have contended that education comes under Concurrent List and
the Centre, in all respects, should be a necessary party. The SC has
also issued notice to the state.

HC adjourns contempt petition: A Karnataka HC division Bench on Monday
adjourned the hearing on a batch of contempt petitions filed by
private managements against education department officials. The court
is awaiting the decision of the apex court.
