Centre wants Sanskrit to be a third language in KVs

The Centre submitted before the Supreme Court that Sanskrit will be the third language in classes 6 to 8 in Kendriya Vidyalayas.

Appearing before the bench headed by Chief Justice H L Dattu yesterday, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi sought its permission to file an affidavit on the controversy arising out of Centre’s decision to drop German as an alternative to Sanskrit as third language in Kendriya Vidyalayas.

The bench allowed him to file an affidavit and posted the matter for today.Earlier, on 21st of this month, the apex court had agreed to give an urgent hearing on the petitions filed by a group of parents of Kendriya Vidyalaya students on the issue.

Counsel for the petitioners have contended that the decision regarding selecting language should be left to the students and parents, and government should not impose its decision on them, especially in the middle of the ongoing academic session.
