BANGALORE: Pulling up the state government for not obeying the full
Bench verdict on the language policy, the Karnataka High Court on
Thursday asked it to consider a fresh application filed by
Rashtrotthana Parishat, seeking permission to start an English-medium
school, purely in terms of the July 2, 2008, verdict.

"How can you do this? What you have done is unconstitutional. I
remember having quashed 500 such endorsements. The verdict of the full
Bench is the law of the land," Justice S Abdul Nazeer observed, while
allowing the petition.

The Rashtrotthana Parishat, a wing of the RSS in the state, filed this
petition seeking direction to the authorities to consider its
application for starting an English-medium school in the city.

The organization, which is running around 30 educational institutions
in the state, has challenged the endorsement of the February 27, 2009
order issued by the DDPI, Bangalore South, rejecting its application.
The authorities had rejected the proposal on the ground that the SLP
filed by the state is yet to be decided by the apex court, with regard
to the 1994 language policy.
