 Kageri seeks legislation on language policy ·   T


The former Minister for Primary Education Vishweshwar Hegde Kageri on
Tuesday demanded that the State government come out with a legislation on
language policy. Accusing the government of not being serious about the
issue, Mr. Kageri said the government should clarify its stand. “The
government has received thousands of applications to open English-medium
schools. If the department does not allow the schools to open, then it is
contempt of court. It should take a decision on this at the earliest,” he

Mr. Kageri, who also criticised the State government for forming a new
committee to review textbooks for classes 1 to class 10 from the coming
academic year, demanded that the committee be annulled.
