The Supreme Court bench comprising Justices DY Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and KM Joseph on Thursday sought response of Srinivas Guntipalli on whose plea the Andhra Pradesh High Court had stopped the implementation of the plan in government-run Telugu medium schools.
The high court in April had set aside the order for government schools to convert the medium of instruction from Telugu to English.
Advocate KV Vishwanathan, appearing for the state government, said the order during the hearing conducted via video conference.
He said a majority of parents wanted English to be the medium of education and it was a progressive, forward looking measure in accordance with the Constitution.
Advocate Gopal Shankarnarayanan, appearing for caveator, accepted the notice and will have to file response in two weeks. The top court has now fixed the plea for hearing on September 25.
